    Default Signum 2.0DTI - spanner light - 3rd time in 6mths

    Poxy spanner light and limp mode. third time in six months. had the EGR valve done, had the glow plug done. Whats the third most likely problem?
    Car booked into the garage again tomorrow.

    Wish i never brought it.

    any advice appreciated. thinking of selling, but love the car, the shape, the leather seats and tinted windows etc.

    what is the most reliable VX engine?

    Hi there m8 , when you take your car to the dealers get what fault codes are brought up then repost with results expected faults should be one of these
    common fault,s with dti engine,s are boost sensor,s needing cleaning .
    check your vacuum hoses for splits especially around the connectors, and check your turbo hoses for splits especially the one,s from your manifold to your intercooler .
    All the above have guides in the how 2 section .
    Driving vauxhall,s for 30 + years
    and still loving it

    My Mk4 Astra 2.0DTi had the same problems, replaced half the damned engine and it was still doing it. Drove fine, the EML and limp, wheezed along a bit then light off and back to normal. Never got to the bottom of it, traded it in for an even more unreliable Mk5 1.9CDTi.

    Most reliable Vauxhall engine? C18SE. Bomb-proof.
