Hi everybody. A few months ago I bought a 08MY 159 TI with 50000 km on the clock. Great car. But... I've had some problems with it.
Some times the car acts strange. Suddenly it looses it's power. Almost like the turbo isn't working. The engine looses almost all of it's power. No problem when the car is at idle, but once you drive off, it won't go that fast. Also there's no error messages on the display. If I stop the car and start it again, it's fixed. Ohh, the boost gauge reads that the turbo is working.
So... I've changed the EGR valve. It didn't help... so I took it for diag. 1 fault code. MAF "To high signal". Changed the MAF... talked to Opel/Vauxall. They told me that "Too high signal" was usual if there was a small leak or a hole in the hoses after the MAF. Got it checked. No holes found.
I also cleaned the turbo- pressure sensor on the intake. It was REALLY DIRTY.
So.. Suddenly, one morning after startup a "check engine" accured followed by a amber warning light. I drove off to check it once more. Fault code: Temperature sensor, problems with earth wire. That's all... I have NO clue what to do next.
Anybody had these problems?
After checking every little connector on the car and the entire intake hose- system I haven't had the problem... But that's just 2 days ago and I can feel that the problem will return.
2. problem. I'm afraid that my diesel-heater isn't working like it should. The last 3 weeks the car smells half burned diesel inside... Today I had to drive with the "recycle" button on... If i didn't the car would be full of exhaust from the diesel-heater. And sometimes there's SO MUCH SMOKE in the engine bay that I'm getting worried that the car's on fire. Anybody had similar problems?
