    Default 1.9 150 vectra SRI - new owner questions

    Hi, just purchased a 2007 (57) vectra 1.9 150 SRI from a garage with 44k on the clock. I have been looking through this forum to see if there are any known issues that could or have happend with this model, and there seems to be quite a few! EGR valve, Swirl valve, DPF, Fuel pump, inlet manifold...etc etc!

    Just wanted to ask what would be the best way to find out if the car has previously had any of these problems or what are the signs if they are happening? Its still got a years VX warrenty left thank god!
    Cheers
    Gary

    Vehicle : Vectra SRi

    Trim : XP NAV

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 150

    Year : 2007

    Default

    There are loads of threads on this mate, the search function at the top will be your best friend

    But, the highlights are as follows:

    • DMF - mettalic rattle when clutch is half pressed to start with, but after a while it will do it all the time the clutch isn't pressed (about £1000 with new clutch and master/slave cylinders).
    • EGR - Lack of power below 2K revs, the car should pull from 1500rpm, but an EGR fault would cause this to happed after 2K instead (free to clean, about £100 to replace).
    • Boost Sensor - As above (free to clean, about £50 to replace).
    • 3rd Injector Wiring - As above, but pre 2007/8 cars (£13 wiring fix from VX).
    • Inlet Manifold / Swirls - As above, but costs alot more to fix (about £750).

    These are specific CDTi 150 issues, the usual "Vectra" ones are ontop of this...

    • Wiper Linkage
    • Snapped Coil Springs
    • Rattling Boot lids etc.....


    Have fun
