    could be many things... you need to get it to a dealer and get the fault checked..

    could be anything from the Air mass meter to a lambda sensor that has failed.

    Air Mass Meter is the usual suspect - are you able to swap with another Z20LET at all? always good to carry a spare anyway as they often go - try LMF or Courtenay for a discount off the retail price.

    Defo, as Scott says, air flow meter is the first thing to replace. Id advise against taking it to the dealer, because after 4 attempts they could'nt figure out what it was, until I told them to replace the air flow meter .

    Tech 2 (vauxhall diagnostics) dont pick up faulty air flow meters you see

    So your all advising him to spend all that money on an afm when it might not be that?

    if the light is up showing a fault it would be better to see what has caused it!

    Wouldn't it be a lamda sensor if it's the emissions light? Is the light on solid, or flashing?

    better that it's constant on, as flashing means risk of damage to the cat.

    thats bollocks, the fault would be stored in the ecu memory!


    Take it back to them and make sure they fix it.. if not phone vauxhall customer services!
