Vectra C Spanner Light on
« on: 06 September 2012, 13:21:21 »

'58 plate 1.8 Vectra C Spanner Light on. Engine is Z18XER 16v 140 bhp, done 105k

Had Cambelt Kit, WP, Thermostat, Coolant and Aux Belt changed by now bust main dealer, (price matching is wonderful 8) ), at 99k.

Spanner light been on and off, mostly on, for last 3k.

Only stored code is 0011 :-\, summat to do with the variable timing? Best I could find with google  ::)

Could this be due to it being 5k past its usual 10k oil change? Only ever had VX 5w30 put in it. Or is summat else amis :-\

TIA, Al :y

Pop the phaser valves out and clean the wire gauzes and valves, the inlet one is the one more prone to gooing up (no idea why!)

Exhaust one is a little more tricky to get at!

Infact there is a bulletin:

Quote
Reference Information / Bulletin Number
10-06-04-016

Model Year
2008-2011
Vehicle Line / Condition

Engine lack of power with DTCs P0011, P0014, P000A, P000B, P0012, P0015 or engine rattle noise

Do This
Remove the oil filters from the camshaft position actuator solenoid valves

Don't Do This
Don't replace the camshaft position actuator solenoid valves


Remove the inlet solenoid, plug the hole to stop excess oil spillage.
Remove the 2 orange filter bands and the black end cap filter from solenoid.
Refit solenoid

Same for exhaust solenoid if necessary.
Although I prefer to keep the gauzes!

Inlet not to bad, the exhaust a little more challenging!

As said, do the inlet one first as they seem to be the ones most prone to clogging.

Not too bad a job in the end :y Spanner light still on though. Will it sort itself out or does it need plugging in to clear? Only code showing is still 0011 :-\
