    Default Hi all, a few issues

    Hi, this is my first post due to me having a few issues with my 1.9 cdti sri 150 '04 vectra. First off love the car. had it 3.5 years now and still can't believe a diesel feels so quick and responsive. Anyway whilst i've had no drop in performance i've been getting huge clouds of black smoke out of the exhaust every time i accelerate with more smoke for the more i press the accelerator. I've read on here various things and plan to change the air filter and clean the egr valve. When i took off the plastic engine cover i noticed there was a fair bit of what looks like a black carbony stuff under what is the top layer of pipes and stuff (sorry for poor description as you can tell i'm really not a mechanic) and what looks like some oil mainly towards the top left of the engine. If anyone has any tips or advice or ideas i'd be most grateful. Additionally if anyone has any performance tweeks i can try that won't cost the earth or wreck the car i'd also be most grateful. Cheers guys.

    hi m8, welcome to vectra-c........


    sounds like it needs a very good clear out, give it a good thrashing that should do the job
