    Default 1.9cdti 134000 miles - what to check to improve perfomance

    Hi all.

    As above, I have a 1.9cdti 150. Its done a fair few miles, about 134000, and to me, it seems to run OK.

    I have read stories on here about swirl valves, EGR's, fuel pumps etc being faulty.

    What things should I be checking/cleaning in order to ensure I am getting optimal performance. I have a Caterman box fitted, not sure if that affects anything (clogging up with dirt, straining pumps etc).

    I have had the car about a year, and despite the high miles, nothing has gone wrong with the engine (touch wood).

    I'd leave it alone and get yourself some lottery tickets bought! Your luck is obviously in

    I wish.

    I do two lines a week via the Lottery website (automatic direct debit) and have won jack all so far!

    I guess the saying "if it aint broke don't fix it" comes into force here then?

    Vehicle : Insignia CDTi SRi NAV 160

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : A20DTH

    Year : 2009

    Mileage : 88000

    Default

    Leave it as is then, if its running fine. I find the more mileage a car does the better it seems to run/have less faults
