    Default SRI 1.8,First no guts and now wont start

    Hello,

    I have an issue with my Vectra 1.8 SRI Nav, petrol.

    Last Thursday I was driving home and noticed there was no power when trying to accelerate. It was similar to limp home mode, but I could get the speed up, it just took a long time.

    There are no fault codes or warning lights.

    I parked it up and the next morning tried to start it and it wouldn't. It turned over ok, just wouldn't start. Got the AA out and he said it looks as though the choke is stuck on, and the engine is flooding. We got it going by towing it. There was still no power in it and when I tried to start it again this morning it wouldn't.

    Do you think this would be related to the EGR and does anyone know where the choke is on these please?

    Thanks,

    their is no choke or EGR valve on these engines., thats if it is a z1.8xer engine.
    i had a similar prob and it turned to be the CAT as it was blocked with broken bits of the cat itself.
    take it off and have a look at the top of it,
    its worth a try and wont cost you anything if you do it yourself.

    The only choke (as far as I know) these have is on the engine map - just a richer fuel mixture. When did it last have a fuel filter change? Was a diesel but last time I had this it was the fuel filter was that clogged it couldn't pull the fuel through. If the cat was packing up and falling apart I'd expect you to be able to smell it but possibly not.

    I would be looking at a collapsed Cat too. If you can get it running check there is exhaust gases coming out the rear.
