    it was just a guess, if you take your car to a local garage they will do a diagnostic check, phone a few before you go, probably cost about £20 for the check

    Although it can cost more than that for diagnostic checks.

    lol thank u i will have to to that god i remember when that used to be about £55 to have it looked at cheap now

    1st thing to check is the mass airflow meter you get it from scrapyard? Possibly faulty. Also on a very well known auction site you can get a diagnostic handheld device to check and clear fault codes for the price you would pay a garage and are very easy to use. Just make sure it is OBD2 compliant. I have found one for £24.99 plus £4.99 postage.:thumbsup:

    i am thinking of getting one of ]these around £18 delivered any good?

    had my 52 vectra diagnosed for £20 cash at a local independent vauxhall mechanic and the wifes peaugot was done for £25 at a local garage, phone around for the best prices

    Air flow meter is a common problem on the old shape vectras, i had the same problem on mine years ago,

    The one from the scrappy could be faulty, what usually happs is you get to a certain rev range then it goes into limp mode, tuen iff the engine and it should clear, is this what happens ?
