    Vectra Problems
    "Hello PaI have a Vectra 1.9 CDTI 120bhp, 04,
    it kicks out too much black/grey smoke, the car with the spanner sign goes on and off on its own, I lose power, keep going and resets itself, still got the smoke. Is been going on for few weeks now.
    Some days it's ok, no smoke and no loss of power.
    Got 75000 miles.
    Can you help me understand what is goig on please?

    Thanks

    Giulio "

    This came to me only as a PM and I have posted this here to widen the audience and expertise so at the moment I have pushed this member towards the EGR and the stealers for a reading of the fault code anybody else got any sensible ideas.

    Really needs a code read, black smoke unburnt fuel as u know, so could be EGR, not inlet manifold on these, could well be split hose or something, but grey smoke not sure what could be causing this?

    Grey smoke can be caused by faulty injectors,incorrect timing,or something other than diesel in the fuel tank.

    Thank you very much Paul and all

    I'll order a new EGR, check for any split hoses and see what happens.
