    Unhappy More problems with my Veccy

    Had my 2.2dti sri looked at again today after the egr valve not solving my loss of power problem, all pipes are ok, as is the intercooler, so were looking at a turbo now, any1 any ideas on price?? Also i had a small leak coming from underneath, some sort of fluid, then a couple of days ago the check p.a.s fluid level warning light came on, so i presumed that was the leak and have now got that checked and it seems i need a new p.a.s rack(great news) is this a big job, price etc.. And now the check safegaurd light has came on, to do with alarm system i think, not having much luck am i, i love the car but its giving me a hell of a lot of problems
    Any advice would be great(apart from the obvious which would involve a match )
    Cheers

    Vehicle : Insignia

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI [170 PS]

    Year : 2015

    Mileage : 27000

    Think a turbo is around £400, and I dont imagine labour will sting you too much as the turbo is on the top left at the back of the engine.

    Id be tempted to get the car plugged in mate for a full diagnostics. Turbos very rarely pack up so it could be throwing a red herring. The PAS problem is a bit more difficult but still get a second opinion. As for the alarm issue well a diagnostic should pin point the issue. Dont hazard a guess these days let the diagnostic find the problems and take it from there.

    Got it put on tech2 in Vauxhall, they told me it needed egr valve!! Said something along the lines of boost pressure fault and taking in air??? Had it all checked by a mechanic who is a mate of mine(wouldn't spin me a load of crap) as i said he checked pipes and intercooler but not 100% sure as to if the turbo is at fault. Do i check the fuses beside the battery??
    Thanks for the suggestions, appreciated
