    Default Vectra C Questions 2006 1.8 16V

    Hi All

    I have recently purchased a new (06) Vectra, and i love the car to bits however i have a few Questions

    The car (1.8 16V) has recently been serviced, however on start up the oil light takes a good 3-4 seconds to go out, when its out though it stays out.

    I Will check levels etc, however I just wondered if this was normal or not. as my Astra 1.6 8V went out more or less straight away.

    I think the parcel shelf is rattling which is slightly annoying and it didnt do this on test drive becasue of the "Tester Licence Plate" on the back. would it be just a case of it not seating properly or do they normally do this as well, I have been advised that the tailgate might need adjusting, however it seems to close fine.

    Is it actually the parcel shelf, is anything obviously missing or worn?

    In the past I stuffed some folded cardboard between the front of the shelf and the rear of the rear seat in the middle and it worked.



    The oil question.

    You say from a cold start, the oil pressure light takes a little while to go out. I would suggest a couple of things, as I don't think it is normal compared to mine.

    Oil level
    Oil pressure switch not working properly
    Wrong oil pressure switch fitted

    Or it could be the method of light illumination. On electric instrument packs (like Vec C) the oil pressure switch probably doesn't operate the warning light directly. The IP may switch the light off almost instantly expecting oil pressure to rise, and sensor switch to operate, and then only put it back on if this rise isn't seen by the sensor switch.

    As long as the engine doesn't make any horrific sounds and the light doesn't come back on, then it probably isn't worth worrying about.

    Hi
    Well im please to say, that there is no more rattling, after a bit of poking about it turned out that the backrests on the rear seats where not clipped in to the latch properly, although to get them to latch on it took a really good whack, the rattling is no longer there.
    Whether the seats go back down or not is another story ive not tried it yet
