    Hello guys

    i recently bought a opcom due to my vivaro 2007 plate engine M9R 780 cutting out on me and i'm trying to find the cause of this

    this problem is intermittent the engine cuts out at speed then when i pull over and start the engine again it runs fine for a few weeks and does it again

    using the i got off fleabay when i go throught the selections i can't connect to the van using the M9R 780 option within opcom it just does not connect but when i select the f4r 820 option within opcom it does connect to the van and read codes

    codes generated related to glow plugs but i cant see this making the van cut out at speed i just dont think the opcom is reading the correct codes for the correct engine and im afraid if i clear the codes i might get rid of my only chance of finding my problem

    thing is i've checked my registration via vauxhall and i should have the M9R 780 engine and not the f4r 820

    anyone else come across this i dont know if its an issue with opcom or maybe someone has replaced my van engine with an older one at some point

    can anyone confirm they are able to connect to a 2007 plate with the M9R 780 engine with diagnostic equipment

    could you let me know what equipment will connect


    any help or info appreciated

    thanks

    You may have a dodgy interface or bad software etc. The F4 is a petrol engine, and you have the 2litre CDTI M9 engine.
    Might be useful if you could find another member in your area to double check your opcom.

    dont listen to any vauxhall tech's as they know sweet flip all. its best if u find all the answers for your self on these vans. All these main dealers dont have mechanics all they have is fitters------- problem--------plug in to obd2------------read fault--------------replace-------------and even if it doesnt fix the problem they will still charge u.

    you have the m9 engine in that van. How studip would it be to fit a older engine. Who does that plus why would u change to a older engine as they were 101% worse than the newer m9 engine.

    Rant over

    Find someone with a snap-on solas pro diagnostic equipment and get them to plug it in. I find the solas pro always works well and gives u the answers

    hope this helps

    My van was cutting out, I had a mobile mechanic come out to me and plug in his very expensive testing equipment; a number of faults appeared: Faulty cam sensor, air meter and crank sensor. The guy said he thinks it's the cam sensor; I changed it and didn't do fark all. I worked it out myself in the end; there was a small hole in the turbo inlet pipe after the air meter.

    So many storys are like yours,, from experience i have learned that its best to do it yourself as i have spent thoudsands on parts where idiots have said "it needs this it needs that" and i was the fool paying. Them days are over, if you have a understanding of engines then most def have ago yourself before u waste your money. (dad taught mechanic)

    I'm dad taught too but also did three years at college and six years on the tools. I gave up about 10 years ago now and things have certainly got more complicated; emmisions controls mainly, sensor for this sensor for that. It's great when it works but when it goes wrong no fooker has a clue what to do, including the main dealer garages half the time. I can sort most things but it's not getting any easier. I feel for some of the guys on here who spend a fooking fortune and not get anywhere with it.

    Sorry that doesn't solve your problem ha ha!

    Out of curiosity , did you or anyone else get op-com to work on a 07 vivaro 2.0L . I've tried , it will read some modules , for example I managed to recode a key , but it will not read the engine ECU . I'm using the latest software and firmware and have now tried 2 interfaces (ebay Chinese clones) . Is there a trick to this , or will I have to wait for cracked software update ?

    easy to do , but will only re-code one of your original keys or code a brand new key , won't do s/h keys off other vans . You also need the security code off your car pass
