    Smile now i know why i baught a vectra...

    blimey there brilliant cars to service by far the best and easiest car i have ever done ,
    I changed the plugs, fuel filter , oil filter , air filter , oil , pollen filter radiator flush out and topped up brake fluid so now run's like a mouse so happy also gave it a right good check over too while i had it in the air and spotted a few thing's i'm not happy with (exhaust is getting past it's best/slight gearbox drip) so need to get them sorted out this week hopfully if i can get the car on the ramps at the taxi garage might be after a new exhaust sooner than i had hoped

    Exhaust outer skins go on Vx's, they run quite a while afterwards before they blow so don't be in a hurry to replace it yet, oil drip will most likely coming from the crank seal rather than the box itself, or it could be residue engine oil from an oil change that has blown over the case, best course is use a new seal ring on the sump nut or replace the nut as well and clean the area up and keep an eye on it. hth.
