C5 issues

Post by Robert E1 »


I have just bought a 2010 C5 with 130k miles. I love the car and would like to keep it, but already have problems. There was a leak (seemed like oil) and I put it into the garage and turns out it needs a new steering rack. I have a price for a refurbished one of £390 fitted and I'm happy to pay it.
Problem is the anti pollution light has now come on, and the car seems to be blowing alittle and smoking very slightly.
I suspect possibly the DPF needs replaced and would be willing to do it, but I don't want to spend that amount, if it needs much more. Are there any members who would be willing to do a diagnostic check for me, and let me know what it needs, or any advice?

yep, bring it over to East Calder on Saturday afternoon and I'll give it a check over for you.
PM me for location details and a phone number.
