First post here!
I've got a 56 plate Vectra 1.9 CDTI 120.
I've had one or two problems with it lately and have just had the fuel return valve replaced due to a hole in it which was causing me problems trying to cold start the car. That was Friday just there it was replaced...
Yesterday I finished my DJing at 11:30 in Kirkintilloch after 3 1/2 hours. So out to the car (It was about 15'C outside) and started driving off. After 3 miles of 30mph roads that I cruised comfortably at 40mph I go to the M80 motorway. So I hit the accelerator on the long slip for this motorway and suddenly the car lost power. The engine won't go anymore than 3000RPM when I crash the accelerator out of gear. And it struggles to hit 2000RPM when driving in gear. Particular 4th, 5th and 6th. The car won't go faster than 60mph at a push. When I try and put the accelerator to the floor it feels like the car is slowing down... When I accelerate off now it is very slow so it sounds like the Turbo is screwed...
One thing to point out, is I've heard some loud whining noices when pulling off in 1st gear now and again. But it happened when I left that bar yesterday - Quite a loud one actually.
The car is under Waranty, I've only had the car for 6 months as well. It's clocked up just over 25000 miles and it's last service was at 14000 miles when I bought the thing.
Does anyone have any advice of what it could be, what I could do myself to sort it and what to say to Masterfit when I take the car to them tomorrow morning?
Hopefully the can sort the thing pretty sharpish as I'm driving to great Yarmouth next Saturday for the Football!!
