  2. [Vectra C] [02-08] Smoke from Engine bay at front right of engine 57 plate Vectra 1.9CDTi

    Hi All, I had a search and had no joy finding the same problem I'm seeing. I've had a 170k mile Vauxhall Vectra 1.9CDTi for the last year or so and it has performed really well. Now and again I get a good old smoke from the back of the car (fine on a motorway, not so good at traffic lights)...
  3. [Vectra C] [02-08] Very Shakey and Noisy Engine

    Cavalier, Calibra, Vectra, Signum, Sintra & Insign
    Vectra is very noisy on idle and extremely shakey in Low gear revs... Would a loose engine mount cause this? Is it an easy job to fix that? Where are the mounts located? Cheers
  4. [Vectra C] [02-08] Replacement Engine Caps

    Cavalier, Calibra, Vectra, Signum, Sintra & Insign
    Hi, Was wanting to replace a few of the caps in the engine bay and was wondering where to buy some. Would be looking Oil Refil, Washer, DipStick, Coolant caps etc. Now I know they're all yellow but I would be wanting them in BLUE. Anyone know where to get these blue replacement caps?
  5. [Vectra C] [02-08] Engine Steam Clean

    Cavalier, Calibra, Vectra, Signum, Sintra & Insign
    I have never steam cleaned my engine before and was wondering what all would I need to avoid when doing so. Obviously I know about the fuses and electrics but is there any other main areas that steam/water should stay clear from?
