    Sorry about stupid Q's, but... Have you changed driving styles, more town, less motorway etc? Anyone else been driving it? (Get rid of the easy and obvious things first)

    No difference in driving its A rds to work no towns or villages had thought about filters but these where changed in septmber 08 approx 5k miles so would'nt think it be that VX could'nt see anything but did'nt want to leave it for further investigation because of costs

    Had a similar problem with my Vectra 2.2DTi, had a couple of other issues as well but Mechanic found one of the inlet pipes for the turbo had gone. £120 later seems to have fixed the problem.
