    Default Emission warning light

    Help!

    I drive a 55 plate 1.9 Diesel Signum Elegance, I was coming down the motorway tonight and the fuel filter warning light came on and I then had reduced power.

    I took it to my brother in law who is a Mechanic and he loosened a valve on the bottom of the fuel filter and he said air came out. The light then disappeared which was great, except I now have the emissions warning light on and still have reduced power!

    Does anyone have any ideas, because he said he would need to plug into a computer!

    Thanks

    Emissions light makes me think that the Diesel particle filter (DPF) isn't regenerating...it's definatly time to take it to the dealer and get it 's codes read.. there is a quiet reworking of all DPF equipped vehicles at the moment, so if your's hasn't benn done it could be well worth you while getting it looked at..

    To be honest, as its a 55 reg motor, I wouldn't expect it to cost you ANYTHING, as its less than 3 years old and under warantee.

    Unhappy Emission warning light

    I wish it was still under warranty but it has now done 86k miles, so warranty has gone.

    I have just collected it from the Garage, Vauxhall main dealer and they say it needs the following: -

    Found electronic throttle sensor low
    Boost pressure sensor circuit low
    Requires Intake air throttle

    For the Grand Total of £655.13 minus the £47 they charged me to investigate!

    Can anyone tell me what all those things mean and if I would be better of going to another garage!

    Thanks in advance.
