    Trim : SRI

    Engine : 1.8 VVT

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 76 000

    Default Engine tempreture/general running

    Afternoon

    I have a Petrol 1.8 VVT Vectra. It runs at around 90 degrees which is bang in the middle of the gauge which looks fine but when stopped it smells and feels very warm.

    Also even after running for a fair while, condensation comes out of the exhaust. Very white and clear but didnt know if these 2 things are correct for the engine.

    Cheers

    Mine runs at the same temp as yours on the gauge 90 give or take a degree but when I looked in the secret menu at the water temp it said it was 102,never had any issues temp wise even though I've never heard the fan kick in,in 18 months of owning the car and the only time I get water comin out of the exhaust is when the engine is cold and never when its warmed up

    Hey Patch. I never have water coming out of the exhaust just general white condensation, also smells like fuel i suppose you could say. Doesnt smell/feel/look like anything is wrong but wanted to make sure. Does anyone else feel their VVT feels warm when you get out?

    How do you get into the secret menu?

    Cheers

    Ah sorry when you said condensation I thought you had drops of water comin out the exhaust,they usually do this when they're cold,secret menu I take it you've got a standard head unit turn the radio on press and hold the settings button until you hear a bong should say test mode on in your screen them just keep pressing the bc button to page through all the info,I don't understand most of it but I can pick out some things water temp bein one of them,to exit hold settings button in again until you hear another bong it should then say test mode off on your screen

    Just gone and had a play. Engine runs at 90 dead and doesn't fluctuate at all. All the other stuff seems a little weird to be but im guessing thats for VX really.

    Whats the reason for a trip to cromer? What you driving?

    Cheers
