    Default Flashing glow plug light and no power...?

    Hi

    I have a 2005 Vectra Estate 1.9cdti(150) auto. High mileage car but has recently been serviced with new cambelt+waterpump, new intake manifold, all filters and oil. Car has been running good.

    Just got a flashing glow plug light when I started my car. Ive hbeen told that its the DPF doing a regen. So I went for a drive to get the car up to temp and then hopefully it would be good. I try to drive the auto in manual mode to get above 2000rpms... But it has nopower so it barely moves? Struggeling to hold 30 mphs... Drove for a while and could see smoke behind the car... After a while I stopped and turned off the engine. Restarted and the flashing light has gone away, but still no power.

    Is my DPF ****ed up? Could it be someting else?

    Whats my options?

    //Tom

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Design

    Engine : 1.9CDTi

    Year : 2005

    Mileage : Lots

    Default

    Sounds like it. Is the spanner light on too for a fault code? Sounds like it's too clogged to do a full regen if it's that down on power.
