    Exclamation help vectra problems helpp!!!

    Hi im new to this fourm i have a 2007 vauxhall vectra 1.9 cdti 150 bhp model and im having a few problems, when driving i sometimes loose power and the car shunts a few times then carrys on as normal after a while i dont know what it could be? any help would be greatfull, also the car does not seem to pull as good as a 150bhp car should and when the car is in idle there is quite a loud tapping sound but as soon as i push the accelerator pedal down the tapping goes away could all this be linked?

    the car went into limp mode 2weeks ago and i took it back to vx and the put 4 new injectors in,new fuel pump,and regulater. i got it back 3 days ago.

    it was fine then i drove it 2days ago and it jus didnt have any power untill about 3000rpm, then the engine stuttered a few times.notices this yesterday aswell,then this happened again this morning but the engine mang light came on so turned egine of and on then carried on. but still stutters and loss of power

    the cars been fixed under warranty but what can still be the problem.
    and seein that im 19 they said im not intitled to courtesy car ****sh**


    please heeeelllppp

    Have a look under the thread,s concerning cleaning your egr . choked egr valves are a common cause of badly running engines .
    look in the how 2 section for instruction,s on what to do .

    Chris is spot on there... Certainly sounds like injector number 3 issue..

    If VX have changed the injectors under warrenty, ensure that they have done the plug and loom on number 3 also.. You will be able to tell as the third plug from the left (no.3) will have a different lookin plug on it..

    Common problem with the wiring in the plug breaking down. insist its changed..

    EGR also worth cleaning, but I dont think would cause your stutter / mis-fire..

    when the light comes on do you loose power + does it go into limp mode??, is it flat as a fart ?, get someone to rev it + you go to the back end + watch + feel the amount of exhaust fumes from it when it has the fault, ( low power, no boost ie as if the turbo aint kicking in, no turbo like noises when driven, lower amount of exhaust fumes,) = EGR clogged, = remove + clean, easy job, whats your mileage showing???

    when the engine light is on bud the engine will be as flat as anything as the car then runs in limp home mode this stops the engine being damaged
    vauxhall then need to put there machine on it to read the faults that have activated the engine light ( tech 2) you need to get this done 1st
