    Hi everyone
    I changed the boost control solenoid yesterday which seemed to make it abit better but I still have the same problem just not as exaggerated so I think it did need replacing anyway.

    On further inspection under the bonnet I noticed a hissing sound which seems to be coming from one of the fuel lines ?

    I'm getting Vauxhall to inspect it Monday hopefully this is the route of the problem I will keep u all posted on my findings

    The hissing noise from the fuel lines is normal.

    glad someone mentioned the hissing, always bugged me that

    as for petrol smells, i get it when the fuel cap works loose, which it seems to do when the tank starts to get low, so it might be that, i always do 3 clicks now

    im not speaking from experience here but could it be that rear bcs box that percy posted about recently? he said theres a diapham in it which can split and cause poor performance, think there like £25 or something, worth a go maybe?
