Re: Vauxhall astrvan losing power when warm Sign In

vauxhall astravan 1.7, dti, 2001 model,

im having power problems with my van

i have just had a new aromatic meter, rock a cover, oil cooler installed. the egr cleaned and exhaust cleaned. The van is fine in a morning but its as the day goes on it gradually gets slower and slower. The more mileage i do. in a morning it drives like normal. but when it goes, i cant get above 40/50 mph, smoke comes out back and a bit of a perfumey smell to it, like sutt. im to a point a might as well walk up hills so to speak. I couldnt even attempt the motorway when its bad.

iam at a loss please help asap, as its my work and family transport as luckily it has five seats

thanks ben

That sounds like a possible clogged catalyst, but hard to tell from where I sit. Unfortunately this site is US based and your car isn't sold here, so none of us have access to any tech data for it or have ever even seen one in person. I think you may need to take it in to a local who is familiar with your model and see what he can figure out.
