    Default 1.9 cdti 150 vec... Thinks its fudged! Where do i take it?!? Norfolk area

    I've got a 2005 vec 1.9 cdti sri 150 and I think it's had it! I'm gutted! It was great when I bought it 5 months ago but now it's the biggest bag of crap I think I've ever had!

    It has no power! It smokes like mad on any acceleration (looks like clear smoke)

    From a cold start it sounds terrible! There is a tick/rattle that just doesn't to away even when warm but it far worse when cold!

    It seems to handle like a boat now really seems to lean when taking a tight bend!

    And when cold and I go over bumps there is a horrible metal grinding type noise but once the car is up to temp it goes?!

    But I've had it serviced and had various people look at it and keep getting told there nothing wrong... It's a diesel there noisy... Etc etc and I've had enough!

    Anyone know a specialist or anyone good with this engine in the Norfolk area I can take it to! I want to know what's wrong with it to work out if its worth spending out on repairing it or not?!

    I'm really at the end of the my teather! I've lost my job! Got no cash! Mrs in my ear and now our only car is playing up!

    Any advice gladly welcomed!

    Thanks mate... Trouble is im useless with anything like that, I don't own any tools or anything so that's why I'm trying to find someone who will just look over the whole car and tell me which bits need repairing/replacing to make it run and drive like it should!

    Then I can price up parts and ring around for labour charges etc.. If you get what I mean!

    No I haven't got any warning lights and haven't had since I got it... I've got one of those orange fault code readers but I bought it for a VW so don't know it it would work on the vec?

    Don't want to plug it in incase it screws something!
