    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Sri

    Engine : 1.9 cdti 150

    Year : 2004

    Default Somethings not right...

    Recently my car has been misbehaving. I dont have a clue what is wrong but i will list the symptoms and can anybody help?

    Sluggish
    Feels like its holding back
    Get and error image when i turn the car on and off (Looks like a watering can with a spanner)
    Get the dreaded limp mode come on randomly then turn off a few minutes later and it also comes on when idling.
    Got nothing in lower revs then shoots off when above 2500rpm
    Occasionally dreadful torque steer!?

    Does anybody know whats going on? Is it just a case of cleaning the egr and boost sensor or something more serious?

    sounds like the EGR Valve to me. It will cause rubbish performance under 2k rpm

    Burst or blown off charge, or intercooler hose would be my bet.
