    Tech1/2 or any other ideas?

    Please help! I ve got that jerkiness and hesitaion back again on my 1.8 lump. Had the EGR valve replaced a while back with no effect. Can a tech1 or 2 help? Am I correct in thinking if they wipe the slate clean then download software back onto the ECU it could smooth things out?

    Any info or ideas would be great.

    Another thing, can you think of any cheap/small engine parts that would benefit from a change due to tiredness and age that wouldnt normally be included in a service? The reason I say this is because my cars in pretty much perfect nick although the engine seems a little noisey from time to time and that jerkiness just lets it down.

    Cheers Richie.

    Not sure if you are but you could be suffering from the same problem as me...and so far I'm 3 coil packs, 324876308 sets of spark plugs, 2 full services, 3 goes on Tech 2 and £500 down...still no joy.

    Car is back in on Friday for a new ECU which Vauxhall believe, and I don't, is the cause of all the problems. After a complaint to HQ etc I now have a £430 bill to look forward to and not £685.

    Have a read of these threads: -

    Hiya, mine has come back too - more so after it went in for a yearly service. I'm sure (like the first time) they can fix it by simply reprogramming the ecu to a higher tickover point and not just to drop. Hopefully they will have my original notes at the garage. Good luck.

    hi people, my mate had a simular problem with his 1.8 sport and he tryed everything and in the end it was just a matter of changing the ecu and scrapping the old one as even after it was wiped cleen and redownloaded onto it made no difference but it is a little bit expencive to change! good luck guys

    one thing thats sorted the car out in the past has been to spray the intake with carb spray. maybe worth taking the intake off altogether and cleaning completely
