    ive a 51 vectra 2.2 sri.and lately when turning the steering wheel or
    applying the brakes there's a noise,very low sound.ive also found tiny drips
    of oil on there any warning lights which will come on if this is a
    serious problem or should I be alright until service in 2 weeks.

    You might have an oil leak from your power steering.
    Could be a very good idea to get it checked sooner rather than later.
    Do you plan to do a lot of driving in the next two weeks?

    ive a 51 vectra 2.2 sri.and lately when turning the steering wheel or
    If you're dropping oil on the driveway (if it is oil) get it checked now,
    don't wait for a catastrophic failure.

    Have you checked your fluid level? I think you will find the bottle is empty
    and the noise is the pump running dry. Open your bonnet, look down the back
    of the engine at the steering rack - lots of room to see on a 2.2 petrol -
    are the pipes that join the rack covered in fluid?
    If yes you just need some new sealing washers. If you carry on driving it
    you will be buying a new pump and maybe a rack too.

    Does the 2.2 SRI have any known probs
    with the steering rack - local garage told me I would
    soon need a new one and I have only done 60k miles

    Any other regular probs I should be aware of?
