Automatic and manual gearbox

Some drivers have reported slipping, sudden jerks, or hesitation when changing gears and strange noises coming from the gearbox. These can be caused by a variety of factors, including worn or damaged components, low or contaminated transmission fluid, or even driver error. It is essential to note that not all Vauxhall Insignia vehicles have experienced these issues and the severity of the problem may vary from vehicle to vehicle.

Diesel Particulate Filer

Insignia has been known to have problems with its Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). The DPF is responsible for reducing the amount of harmful emissions produced by the vehicle. However, if the Vauxhall Insignia DPF becomes clogged or overloaded, it can lead to several issues including reduced engine power, warning lights on the dashboard, or even engine damage in extreme cases. Note that the DPF may become clogged if the car is used mainly for short journeys or in urban areas. Make sure to keep to regular maintenance intervals and clean or replace the filter when needed to prevent these problems.

Tyre pressure sensor

The Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), which is designed to warn drivers when their tyres are underinflated, has also caused owners headaches such as the TPMS warning light remaining on after the tyres have been inflated to the correct pressure, while others have reported that the warning light does not illuminate even when the tyres are significantly underinflated. These malfunctions can be due to several factors, including faulty sensors or wiring, low battery voltage, or even a software glitch in the TPMS system.

Battery

The battery has also been reported to deplete very quickly. A faulty alternator, a weak Vauxhall Insignia battery that needs to be replaced, or a parasitic load that draws power from the battery when the vehicle is switched off can be reasons for these faults. Make sure to turn everything off because leaving accessories or lights on for long periods can also drain the battery.

Remap issues

Tuning your Vauxhall Insignia (ECU) can offer improved performance and fuel efficiency. However, it is important to note that ECU remapping can also potentially cause damage to the vehicle if not carried out correctly by a reputable and experienced tuner who can ensure that the vehicle is operated safely and within the manufacturer's specifications.

Turbo and engine

The vehicle has also experienced issues with its turbocharger and engine, such as a loss of power or boost, excessive noise or even failure of the Vauxhall Insignia turbocharger itself. In addition, some drivers reported misfiring, stalling, or reduced power. These can be caused by several factors, including worn or damaged parts, poor maintenance or even software malfunctions.

EGR valve and fuel pump

The EGR valve is responsible for reducing emissions by recirculating some of the engine's exhaust gases back into the engine. However, if the valve becomes blocked or faulty, it can cause reduced performance, increased emissions, or even engine damage.

The fuel pump is responsible for delivering fuel from the tank to the engine. If it becomes faulty, clogged, or fails completely, this can lead to poor fuel economy, reduced engine performance, or even engine failure. If you are experiencing malfunctions with your Insignia's EGR valve or fuel pump, we recommend repairing or replacing it after taking a look at an online Vauxhall Insignia accessories and parts catalogue.

To sum up, proper maintenance of your Vauxhall Insignia is essential to keep it in good working order and prevent potential problems. Regular servicing, including oil changes, filter changes and fluid checks, can help keep your Insignia running at its best and prevent problems from developing. Be sure to address any problems or warning signs as soon as possible because this can help prevent more serious and costly repairs. By following the manufacturer's recommended maintenance schedule, you can keep your Insignia on the road for years to come.
