Well mine still poorly and in the stealers garage.
Started several weeks ago, with missing and lack of power but only occasionally, after atrip to the garage and engine diagnostic no fault found, but the mechanic said i described a faulty egr valve so changed it.

Again still having the same probs and going on hols, i went to a garage on the Isle of wright, still no fault codes, sssooooo on a trip to a castle on the island it got worse to the point where going up a hill @ 40mph it desided to thro a wobbly again, which for info was only 3 hrs later, it got that bad that i ended up in first gear doing 5mph and foot to the floor, hoping to get to the top, still no engine management light, then all of a sudden a small back fire and it pinned me in the seat with the power but bought a eml on.

I thought great now sort it out, so called in the vauxhall assistance, who checked the car over and said its not doing it now but the fault was p2279 air intake system fault so take it to the garage when you get home, any probs call us out.

Well after 3 miles here we go again and this carried on for 80 miles when all of a sudden it behaves and drives really smooth no hessitation for the last 80 miles or so and still no eml.

The following day i gave them a ring and took it in, and they changed the air mass sensor, great i thought this would do the trick, but hey presto on the way home same again.

Rang again the following day and its back again, mechanic goes for a spin and says nothing wrong, so i took him for a spin and it started doing its hessitation @ 70mph in top, so at least he knows what pain i am having now, so its now apparently waiting for new injectors, hopefully this will sort it out as i am told he is the best mechanic they have.

Watch this space, only had the bus a few months so still wanting to enjoy the experience.

New injectors sorted the problem out, feels like a new bus ...

Tho why they went with less than 10 k on the clock beats me.

I didnt, i took the mechanic for a drive and showed him the fault, It went in on Thursday and i fetched it back on the Tuesday the following week.

Its all credit to the mechanic, its not something i would have guessed to be honest, as i thought when they acted up it was constant and my knoledge of diesels isn't that good, the only job i have ever done apart from a service was change the head gasket on one and that was about 10 years ago, after that i must admit i got idle and started buying newer cars so i didn't have the hastle.
