    confused its done it again!

    A few weeks ago i had to have a new EGR valve fitted, today after a very early start and 400 odd miles the car looses all power in the fast lane which was fun!
    So with the spanner light on and the car in limp home mode (seriosly struggling to keep up with all the lorries!) i managed to get it back to the dealers.
    I use Murketts in st ives and they are a great bunch, they took it straight in and plugged it in to find out the swirl valve is knackered!

    Im wondering as this car has now done around 16k with a tuning box on, is this contributing to the problems?

    Ive now removed it (obviously as its being fixed under warranty) and i dont think im gonna put it back on again!

    What do you guys think? ?

    i'd leave it off....

    ours has never been boxed, but it seems that you're having exactly the same faults as our 150...just need to convince him to ditch his....

    I hope you fair better Rich, but ours has lately become a constant shuttle between us and the dealers workshop.. it must even have it's own ramp by now....

    lets hope they've got stock of the swirlvalve... i had to wait 3 weeks for an inlet manifold....

    it is quite a job, but the fitters are normally quicker than book times..

    im in shock!
    just got a phone call today at 12, your car is ready!
    so i took it in yesterday at 4pm and they thought they would struggle to get it done by friday night!
    im suitably impressed!
    so thats a big brownie point for Murketts Vauxhall in st ives, cambridgeshire!

    not so much.......harry's words ringing in my ear.......went out in it last night done 20 miles and back in limp mode

    took it in this morning plugged in to tech 2 and same fault code, they are now fitting a new inlet manifold, which i beleive includes cambelt change while they are at it! estimated cost around 1100 quid with labour, im so so pleased its covered under warranty!
