    Default Vauxhall Vivaro poorly

    Following on from my previous thread,our Vauxhall Vivaro van on an 04 plate has had to go the main dealers due to it running on 3 cylinders.Getting it to the stealers was a nightmare as it kept stalling.Anyway we have left it with them and they rang up at 5pm to say that the van will have to stay in over weekend.
    They say theres multiple faults showing up(all not related) and so they think its a wiring loom fault(ie wires shorting out to each other and throwing up random faults).
    So now the vans off the road till at least Monday tea time.
    I dread to think what the bill will be
    If anyone has had the same thing on a Vivaro then let me know what the cause was.Cheers

    if it is a wiring loom fault it will be a rub out on a part of the engine somewhere .....it is usally the loom as it passes under the ecu crash box .... if it is a faulty injector ...all i can say is good luck to them in getting it out as they can stick in the heads and are very very hard to remove hope it isnt a faulty injector .... ...
