    Check the code in the "How to check error codes thread" here - http://www.vxronline.co.uk/forum/for...w-to-Astra-VXR

    The P0136 is a Lambda error the 000000 just means end of errors

    Astra

      Get it to a VX Dealer ASAP - hopefully you are still under warranty, sounds like it could be serious!

      headgasket ? - whats your water level like ?

      The noise is it coming from behind you (fuel pump under backseat) or infront of you (turbo) ??

        sounds to me like turbo, is there smoke just on start up? or constant?

          thanks guys well the noise seems to be midway so back seat would be about right which would indicate fuel pump.the waranty ran out in march 2011 and there are no visible signs oil in water or water in oil but it has used some oil recently

            theres only normal smoke on startup but when engine reaches optimal temperature thats when it smokes and increases when you put your foot down

              Compression tests would be the next thing to undertake............

                    should i clean or buy new sensors and would an oil restrictor bolt be of any advantage to the turbo at the moment
