    yesterday i dropped the fresh powersteering fluid as the EHPS was howling like a banshee, the fresh oil came out black but not gritty like it was when i removed the old oil. This was my last attempt before replacing the darn EHPS pump because seriously the price they ask for them is ridiculously high ( being the one placed in the OS drivers front wheel well). So to make sure the fluid would be optimal i filled it up with this

    than topped it up with specific vauxhall powersteering fluid....

    noise reduced to almost non audible yesterday, this morning it is completely gone... no more banshee sounds, low or high pitched squeals... result!
    so if you have a high pitch banshee EHPS.. give this a try and make sure that when you remove the old oil it's not gritty if it is you'll need to flush the system first, with fresh oil until the lot is gone.. ( drive it like that for a few days) than replace it with fresh powersteering fluid and the lucas product... it should work it did for me, and like i said mine was that loud it actually made the front of the car vibrate to the frequency of the whine. all of that is now completely gone

    Checked the long term fuel trim to see if using the original map would affect it greatly then reloaded the higher boost better map ive been using for along time now. Feels better off sport with a restricted 255 bhp than the original did with full power all the time

    Sworn at it a lot! Been having an on going issue with my os rear indicator/brake lights throwing up a malfunction light on the dash..every time I check, take them out to find the bulbs are fine as is the connection between bulb and bulb holder (no corrosion), put it all back together and it works fine for a few days or weeks...now however they have stopped working all together and no amount of taking apart seems to make a difference...even cleaning the electrical connection inside the car only worked temporarily...so now I'm stumped because the bulbs are fine, all connections seem fine but I have no indicator or brake light !!!

    Any thoughts anyone?

    Took delivery of a new rear water hose as Ive had a small weep for years which was easier to work out where from when i took the down pipe off a couple of years ago, so after a few water top ups i decided to just replace the lot to be safe when i fit the standard downpipe to eliminate the exhaust leak.

    Sorry guys and girls but after 16 years owning a Vectra 6 years on a 2.5 v6 and 10+years on my 2.2 direct I have gone to the dark side, today I purchased a 68 plate 2.0L Mondeo Titanium 180 in gun metal, full of gadgets like lane assist that I will never use and full leather, although I loved both Vectras the comfort and quietness of the newer car cannot be ignored.

    Had someone turn in to me in the car park and car's a write off as far as insurance is concerned with only scrapes along both driver's side doors.
