Well it looks like I am about to join the list of victims of this issue, car started with a random ECS warning every so often and a lumpy idle for a week or so, which then cleared up by itself for a week and ran smooth, then I saw oil from the exhaust booked it into a garage, during the wait, the oil issue developed into a full on leak, then engine warning light came on (steady and flashing) in conjunction with ECS, got a fault code for misfire on cylinder one, got it into the garage, 45 psi from piston one. Spoke to Vauxhall main dealer, who promise nothing but will recover car to their own service garage. Looks like a big bill coming my way. I have a few questions:
1) What has been the out come from others with this issue, i.e. Vauxhall paid part of the cost or left you high and dry?
2) Any advice?
3) I am interested in how many people on this forum have had this issue, because I cannot help but think Vauxhall will try and palm this off as my fault and want some numbers to fight back or go to an outside agency for support.
One last thing, car was 2nd hand (from Vauxhall) with full service history (majority of services at Vauxhall, one or two not), I have had the car for just over one year, it has not even done 45,000 miles year, so therefore I have had it serviced once at the correct interval, and lugging the car is not my driving style, no putting my foot down at high gear and low revs, use to drive lorries so not the way I drive. Wife thinks I am mad always checking the levels and tyres before long journeys and each week.
