    confused Vectra sri diesel smoking badly

    Hi to all who may be able to help me (im new to this forum )
    So here goes my 05 vectra sri 1.9turbo diesel is currently having some troubles. It starts fine in the morning and does not smoke even under hard acceleration but when it warms up it smokes rel bad and looses power. Left it to vauxhall and they said it would need a turbo, intercooler and and o2 sensor (£1500 ) i thought a turbo would have smoked continuly (even cold) . Any advise would be great thanks..

    Lots of smoke and loss of power is classic 'EGR valve stuck in open position' stuff,which it may not do when the engine is cold.

    Were there any codes? (spanner light)
