    Default cdti 120 turbo problems (i think)

    hi all
    sorry for the vagueness hard to explain. Im having a problem with my vectra SRI 120 cdti took it in for a service the other week at a local garage not VX. since I have had it done i dont seem to hear the turbo winding up and it seems really sluggish. I also used to hear the blow off valve very slightly when changing gears. last night I was on a country road set off from a 30 to national limit had it in third to get going.... as I revved thru 3rd the light on me dashboard came on (the car with a spanner) and the engine had no power!! i pulled over panicing switched the engine off. restarted it and the light went off and worked fine again.

    earlier in another post somebody suggested cleaning the EGR valve how? sorry iv never worked on the vectra. also when i got the car serviced the guy said he'd put some additive into the fuel tank (like reddex) but I cant remember the name of it.


    any suggestions guys/gals. its under warranty for another 5 months but I hate taking the car to vauxhall as the ones near me are useless.

    thanks rob

    Vehicle : CDTI 150

    Trim : Design

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : 2005

    Default

    I took my CDTI 150 to the local Vx dealers and complained that the turbo was noisey.
    This was changed under warranty, car was 2 and half years old with 43K on the clock.
    If its under warranty take it in, a turbo change is well over a grand.
