    Default 2.2 dti cutting out

    can anyone help, my 2004 2.2dti vectra is intermittanly started to cut out, when it does the spanner light comes on, more often than not it will restart but sometimes it's more difficult to restart, i have noticed that the mpg has dropped significantly, had it back to the dealer where i bought it (independant dealer) they claim to have put a reader on it but say there's nothing stored, when it doesn't cut out the car drives brilliant, i have also noticed that when accelerating hard at around 3000 rpm upwards there's a mettalic tapping noise like a worn valve lifter but nothing under normal driving conditions, it also sounds like there's a small exhaust leak. the egr and inlet manifold have already been cleaned out. one other point to note it tha when you come off the gas to change gear there's a slight hiss from somewhere.
    any help would be great.

    The hiss is the turbo. Our 2.2DTi does that too.

    I have a mettalic (or at least I think it sounds metalic like) tapping noise when accelerating hard at around 1500rpm on my 3.0CDTi. Injector(s) packing up there
