Re: little squeak when auto box changes up

Mice???



Could the squeak just be an engine mounting rubber?


BTW, it is not a good idea to listen too attentively for squeaks, clonks and other noises. That way madness lies. Just wait until it goes wrong and then fix it.

Re: little squeak when auto box changes up

A wise mechanic's words to me once: "Let it develop."

My manual makes a few squawks now and then, especially if pushing hard then letting go all of a sudden. Is there a waste gate on the turbo with these - it sounds to me like there could be.

Re: little squeak when auto box changes up

it could be the EGR actuator that kicks @ about 2000rpm, which is normal and it's sounds like an actual spring squeak and it has been discussed extensively here and on vectra c forum.

Re: little squeak when auto box changes up

A Leaking Hose On the turbo?
The Pressure is too low to open turbo's gate
When you get abit more pressure the turbo opens up and away you go

EGR valve fault doesn't automatically evoke engine warning light. I suspect this is the most likely cause, it was how mine behaved.

New ones can be had on fleabay for less than 100. (Vectra C or Saab). there are two different types. The one for the 8v motor is a three bolt fixing, the 16v is a four bolt. Also best to fit a restrictor plate (FIAT) for a fiver, helps to stop it sooting up.

There is another thread about this
