    Default HELP!! Am starting to hate my signum! :(

    the car to blame is a signum 2.2 direct petrol and Its falling to bits! lol! firstly the car with the spanner came on which quickly changed to the engine exhaust light constantly showing! its driving like a pile of poo! have now had the ecu changed at nearly £800 and it hasnt seemed to have done anything! although, it apparently cleared down some of the 26 faults that kept showing up! am now in need of an inlet manifold!
    Does anyone have one lieing around that i can perhaps purchase??? or a fuel pump?? as im told i may need one of those to! ANyone know where i can get a cheapo one?
    Whats happened to cars these days??? why cant they just be simple!

    Cheers

    Sorry to hear this, I used to have a 2.2 - it failed miserably at 115,00o but luckily didnt have any other major faults, I see it as luck of the draw...

    Cant help with parts but I think ebay is your best bet, there is loads of 2.2 parts on there.

    This manifold shoud fit, its an upgraded 2.4 one from a Z22SE, I think it will fit, let someone clarify it, im too well up on the direct.

    Would it not be cheaper to get a warranty and then have the work taken out in a month or two?...The inlet manifold willl be covered

    Although its a pain, the inlet manifold shouldn't cause any problems in the short term.

    I would check if the manifold is covered by warranty first before taking one out as the warranty i got with my vec was the highest spec and the inlet manifold isn't covered - that's why ive waited 3 months for the finance company to sort it lol

    hope you get things fixed mate
