    Default 1.9 / 2.2

    lookign for a vectra atm and i want an sri but i cant seem to find a 1.9 anywhere by me but there seems to be a few 2.2. now i have looked on parkers and the mpg seems the same but the insurance group is 3 lower
    is this right?

    are there any main differences between the two and what are they like with problems?

    cheers

    Vehicle : Focus

    Trim : Titanium

    Engine : 1.6 TDCI

    Year : 62

    Mileage : 9K

    Default

    there is lots and lots on this forum do a search. 1.9 and 2.2 all have their own problems, but i personally think the 2.2 dti s are better and more reliable. But im byist aswell.

    And yes group 3 less than 1.9. cheaper too.

    The 1.9 is for sure the better engine, quicker, smoother and good on mpg. Had 4 myself and thing they are great.

    The power steering pump is electrically driven, yes - totally seperate from the drive belts. And the 1.9 everyone was talking about was the 150 version, which is a totally different beast from the old 2.2 which is about 125 bhp...
