    Default Engine Fault

    My vectra c 2.0dti warning light came on and went out again today when this happened the car would not rev by 2500rpm. i started it again when i got home and all was well could this be the start of something about to happen? the bottom pulley that runs the belt for the water pump and alternator sheared off yesterday 10/12/2005 and was replaced. Air box etc was removed to allow access. All the plugs and connections etc seem to be replaced ok! thanks in advance for any help offered. Regards Bentleyboy.................... PS it also had all filters replaced as well as oil etc yesterday Maybe a small air lock? no just guessing!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Not revving past 2500 could well be the camshaft or crankshaft sensor. If the bottom pulley sheared off, did you have the timing belt position checked?

    If you are still under warranty, take it back. If not get the fault codes read. when the spanner shows it automatically logs the code.

    Very unlikely to be oil related.The system primes in 30 seconds or less and airlocks are unheard of.
