    Default I may be in the wrong place.....

    Sorry if this question is in the wrong forum, im new to this site and am not sure where i should post this.

    I have an 03 2.2dti vectra, when i accelerate the engine is sucking in a lot of air, also the car is smoking a lot too.....any ideas please?

    I put a reconditioned turbo on it in November last year so hope its not that.

    you will find it is blowing the air out ...it is possibly due to a broken / split intake air hose very very common on the 2.0 /2.2 diesel's
