Hello all, I've got a 2008 Vauxhall Combo van 13 cdti, it's got 150,000 on the clock . Last week I went to Cumbria (approx 90 miles) , i ended up having to get it recovered as it just cut out one day when I was there, I originally thought it could be the timing chain but I've now been able to rule that out. I now think it could be the head gasket, even though it showed non of the symptoms
It didn't miss a beat on the way there
not using water
pipes weren't pressured
No oil in the water
I was just wondering if anyone else has had the same . It did notice that sometimes it used to be sluggish at roundabouts , I had to give it loads of revs to get it going properly.
I forgot to mention that the engine management light came on earlier that day , that's when it was sluggish . I stopped to go shopping and the EML went off and it seemed to run ok again.
The original reason for mentioning no compression was because of the recovery company that brought me home said this...ive heard different things so now I think it could be just their way to get more money out of me...
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you
