    confused Vauxhall virgin havin problems

    Hi all, have recently bought an 04 plate 2.2 Dti Signum, it constantly loses power and revs as if the engine is starved of fuel, the engine management light comes on, after a few minutes the light will go off, revs return to normal and the car can be driven again for anything between 2mins and 2hrs before it does it again, can anyone tell me what the hells happening. Incidentally the previous owner has had a VXR exhaust fitted, dont know if this makes a difference.

    Have you checked to inlet manifold swirl valve rod?


    Not sure if this applys to your engine but if the funny shaped metal rod becomes displaced this could be causing your issues.

    But this may only apply to disel engines!!!

    the above photo relates to the cdti unit not the dti...

    check the vac tube end connectors for splits, vac pumps to make sure there working & check for sticking egr... very common on all dti's
