    The oil filler cap on the engine is on the right hand side of the engine if its a 150 and on the left if a 120 from standing in front of the car hth.

    Swirl valves
    3rd Injector
    Handbrake Recall
    and knocking/ rubbing noise when both wheel go over a bump at the same time (anti roll bar bushes cheap to buy a pain to replace.)

    If you push the clutch pedal down about halfway if your DMF is fubard you will hear a rattle almost the same sound as a worn release bearing.

    Most 1.9 CDTi's are trouble free, but there are issues with EGR and Swirlflaps on a small percentage. I have had 4 now, only an injector fault on my current car is what I have suffered with.

    Would I have another? Absolutley without hesitation.

    By the way, welcome to Vectra-C.com!

    My vectra is by far the most reliable car I have ever owned however.....watch out for coil springs snapping.....and getting the correct ones fitted again!!
