    Default Stupid VX... How can they call themselves Technicians!

    Following on from this thread...

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=69526

    I got so annoyed at how my Turbo kept cutting out, I started to rip (Not literally LOL) the Airbox and air pipes out to check them one by one for leaks...

    THEN... Before I'd even finished undoing the airbox lid... There it was...

    The middle intake pipe between the airbox and grille intake had come off and meant very little air was going into the airbox. So after I'd reconnected this pipe, I took her out for a drive... she takes off and speeds up just like she used to, the Turbo spin up has also quietened down a lot too!

    So how the heck did VX manage to miss that! (How did I manage to miss that LOL)

    "No fault found sir..."

    Anyway, rant over.

    I firmly believe that VX stealers are always looking for the complicated and techy solutions and often lack basic common sense to look at more basic and fundamental causes.

    Been there, seen it and unfortunately, experienced it at my cost.

    these days there are no such things as technicians or mechanics

    they are fitters, and they just fit the part that the fault code reader tells them to fit. If it doesnt come up on the fault code reader than its "no fault found sir"

    The days of mechanics actually going into the engine with their bare hands to look for a problem have gone, in dealerships at least.
