    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Design

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 07

    Mileage : 88.000

    Default EML is on and the codes are

    I have the noticed that the engine light comes on only when I slow down form high revs without using the brakes (basically using the engine to slow the car down with the revs around 3000RPM) and then takes an age to clear.
    I have had the codes read and they are
    P2279 - 5b :- I have cleaned my EGR and inspected the solenoid end. The valve wasn't that dirty and the solenoid was free moving. I have also cleaned the Boost sensor that is situated next to the EGR. I have also changed my fuel filter as it has been a while since this was done (around 20mths). I have also tried looking for air leaks without much success. I have noticed before the fuel filter change that my MPG on the motorway at 70 was around 47MPG which seems low (this was with two adults in the car)

    P1120-52 & P1122- 52 Throttle position codes.
    Could these be causing my fault?

    Car is a 07 Vectra CDTI 150 with 88k

    Vehicle : Vectra C

    Trim : basic

    Engine : Z19DT

    Year : 2007

    Default

    My son's Astra H z19 DTH did much the same as yours, cleaned EGR and Boost sensor, drove fine for around 25 miles and then went into Limp home mode. Removed EGR and it looked OK, no problem with solenoid. Just blanked it off and its running fine now, will be replacing EGR for the MOT (EML Light), think the EGR althought it looks clean is not actually closing fully, although it looks closed??????

    Its done just over 90k miles so much the same as your Z19 DTH.
