    the steering light could be the fluid is a bit low, it is under the headlight behind the bumper. the loss of power could be the air flow meter which goes between the airbox and inlet manifold, or a camshaft sensor? so it will be best to get it code read to see what exactly it is

    HI nismo128,

    I found your thread as my signum 1.9cdti (150) is knocking slightly from time to time and knocks 2 or 3 times when i turn the engine off! my car is off the road at mo due to a loss of power at first i thought it was the egr valve and after taking it to a garage to check it on the computer and they told me the egr valve was fine, the guy had a look under the engine cover to find a rod down by the glow plugs had come off, i looked on here to find what it was and found its to do with swirl valves, once the rod has come off and u see oil around the valves it needs a new inlet maniflod (common fault on the 1.9cdti (150) it looks!
    Iv bought a new inlet manifold and control module from vauxhall and plan on doing the job over christmas!
    have a look at the threads below to see if your caris suffering from the same thing!

    Hope this helps!
