Re: little squeak when auto box changes up

Some of the terminology is a bit strange - I think it's been translated from Italian by an Italian.

I haven't got eLearn installed at the mo, but I can always find what I need by browsing through the various section headings. Aim towards the exhaust and you should bump into it.

Re: little squeak when auto box changes up

e learn sucks, at least the cracked versions are very confusing and not user friendly at all.

egr cleaning for 150 with pictures:

https://www.fiatforum.com/stilo-guid...-cleaning.html and you have a bit more pictures over on VECTRA C forum and the 120 is very similar.
Thanks dave thanked for this post

Re: little squeak when auto box changes up

I joined Vectra-C a while ago. No issues. Check your spam filter.

It might be a bit hasty to replace the EGR due to a noise though - diagnosis would be worthwhile.

You can monitor the EGR position with fiatecuscan while you rev it, to check whether it's opening and closing. I don't know whether it monitors required or actual EGR position though - hopefully the latter, as otherwise it'd be useless.

P.S. eLearn works perfectly for me - there's something wrong with your copy or the computer setup. Try burning it onto a CD and/or test it on another computer. I find the instructions pretty good, if a bit over-thorough at times (which is better than too brief).

Re: little squeak when auto box changes up

well i found it, i didn't look as sooty as some others, but if i press the pin in (on the electric half) with my finger it gets stuck in, but if i press it in using the other half of egr it don't get stuck is that normal?

Re: little squeak when auto box changes up

It should move freely when finger pressing, if not it needs to be dissasembled per vec C procedure or at very least drill the 3mm hole on top and shoot carb cleaner at the rod and get it to move freely then some wd 40 and then seal with silicone.

Re: little squeak when auto box changes up

If there's any soot in the right-hand half (the solenoid, inside the cover) then IMO it's pointless cleaning it as the seal's gone. Chuck it and buy a new one.

Re: little squeak when auto box changes up

Those look right to me, especially the first one. Z19DTH is the Vauxhall engine code for the 16v 150BHP engine (what I often search ebay for, after ticking the "Search Description" box). If that's the engine you have then fine.

I've read of people cleaning both sides and making it immaculate, but IMO it's pointless if the seal's knackered. I had a look at mine a year after it was replaced and it's black in the left part, but shiny and spotless inside the solenoid.

Personally, I believe cleaning a knackered EGR valve is a pointless exercise, especially if you drill it. The pressure in the mucky half is higher than atmospheric. If you drill a hole in the solenoid half then it will forever spew sooty air into it via the knackered seal.

They've updated the design at least once, so hopefully they've worked out how to make them last longer than the originals now.
