    Default %**£$"$!!! £$%&(*(&(%$$!!! And That How I Feel!!

    first of all guys sorry for the language i dont normally lose it unless its for a good reason, yet again my vauxhall vectra 1.9CDTI (150) has decided its wanted to go into limp mode after not driving for 2 days, i have had the engine management light appear for a sec when i turned off the engine but would never really come on when drivin apart from today. I did tell them something was wrong and they drove it sayin nothin is wrong, they think i just make this stuff up - well lets see wot they have to say 2day when i take the car in and drive it up their whooops sorry, but why dont dealers sorry stealers as every1 calls them listen to customers?? we drive the car more than they do and we notice every little things that go wrong - or it could b because i have a file of work they carried out the size of the car itself, but that should prove there are problems.


    ok rant over, am takin bets on wot the problem could be swirl valve??? your guess is as good as theirs.....

    if it's gone into limp mode, then a code WILL be stored for them to flag up a faulty component.. If they can ( or can't be bothered) to find it then it's time for a different dealer....

    ok got it booked in for 2morr but thought i would pop to the shops and things have some what changed, now the engine management light only appears for a couple of seconds then goes off but the exhaust emissions light is on all the time, on the way to the shop the car was in limp mode, but on the way back it decided it would drive normal, with the engine management light on and the exhaust emissions light. i used my phone to take a pic of the engine management light due to forkin out £40 for the tech2 test and no code was on, when they said and i quote "if the engine management light appear a fault code will be store in the memory" which is a load of ****! so i now have to prove the light has been on! can any VX engineers confirm this really happens?

    When my exhaust emissions light came on it was caused by faulty injectors.

    If the emissions light starts flashing pull over and turn off the engine as the CAT is being damaged.

    Faulty injector is a fairly painless job. Half a day and I had it back.

    Default Ta Da!!

    well got my car back from the stealers, and my god they said they found the problem!! wait for it...... the swirl valve and the EGR valve, my god i must have some kind of special powers! lol

    anyway they said there replacing the inlet manafold as well as the valves, isn't that a big over the top is that right?

    also am kinda proud of this got a curt car with the fuel light on drove 30+miles, light flashin when i was takin it bck and just managed to park it up and then the engine cut out
