    Take it to your local vauxhall dealership and hope they diagnose a fault and fix it?

    PLEASE,PLEASE HELP ME

    You could always try the HT leads and distributor cap/rotor arm, or could be the ignition coil. Start with the cheapest first
    To walk between the lines , would make my life so boring!!!!!!!!!

    sounds like leads or distributor, if no luck get a compression check done, could be valves seized/cracked up

    I have an Astra with a 1.8 engine at 4000 revs the ecu is supposed to advance the timing and give a bit more pull as this is where the revs generally are when your start overtaking. If your car is popping and misfiring is most likely the coilpack located on top of the head, since your car is an ecotech you wont have a coil or distributor cap or rotor arm, its all replaced by the coilpack which sits directly over your spark plugs. If its breaking down it will usually do it at high revs as this is when the pack is under most strain. If its not the pack it could be the wiring from the ECU to the pack or the ECU itself, the latter is unlikely though. It doesnt seem to be a fuel problem because its too harsh, fuel probs usually just cause a car to splutter or revs to climb slowly.

    It's the coil pack on the car for sure... someone else on this forum had this very same problem on a Ford Mondeo.
