    Default Hi peeps, Yet another Noob.

    Hello there,

    First of all. Hope all is well and happy new year to all.

    And before people coment on my grammer and spelling, I`m sorry I do try my best but my dyselxia gets the best of me some times.
    So please bear with me.

    Recently brought a Vauxhaul vectra C SRI 120hp 2007 137000miles facelift

    £700 ish.

    The problems started a few days after got back was the famous dashbored issue after repeateadly disconnecting battery and dissconnecting dash got really tiresome, so just left the dash losely fitted. have not really had the problem since aprt from a few black out on dash then comes back.

    EGR valve fault, couldnt afford to go to mecanchic. Which i would rather as not really a DIY mechanic. needs must in all. but cleaned it out with egr cleaner was good as new. Thanks to loads of youtube videos.


    Then found the anitjudder part not sure what it does but hay its next to the EGR valve was dripping oil out so took that off and on circuit bored was drenched in oil. cleaned with circuit bored cleaner.
    Can this do any damage?? "no idea"

    And OMG to replace an indicator near side bulb christ :O

    Next is to do the shocks and springs, and try to get right ones is a bleddy hassle pair rear shocks is what £110 cheapist springs £60.


    Anyway look foward to chatting to some frendily strangers.
    All the best
    Mike

    P.s sorry for rambaling on.

    Mike,

    I meant to say, consider something like suitably rated Eibach or other quality aftermarket springs for your Vectra. A car set is something like £165, so a bit more than genuine Vauxhall springs but they will last much longer and improve the feel of the car. At least, mine did, in my opinion and according to my taste.

    Don't worry about spelling and grammar. There are more important things in life, like getting your Vectra sorted.
