Hi .

If your check engine light is on then there is a stored malfunction code in the system ,

All you need is a good code reader or scan tool to check for malfunction codes then you will know what has to be checked ,adjusted repaired or replaced .

But mostly in cases like yours with the high power loss is the EGR the most commone issue on the Vectra 1.9L diesel, you said you cleaned it but is it working have it tested .

Also the vacuum pipes to the boost valves could be bad check all the vacuum hoses .

If you are blowing black smoke check the MAF sensor ,.

Need further assitance then pleas elet me know

But to be sure have the codes read and work from there and if needed get back to me with the codes .

Please rate my help a 3 to 5. " If you are not satisfied please don't rate."
We can continue to work or I can opt out .
For further assistance there is no extra charge after accepting .
If I don't reply soon I will as quick as I can as we may be on different time zones
