I currently own a 1.8 2003 astra coupe of which ive owned for about 18months. Its a great car & luv it but within the last week I have been having problems with the emmisions light coming on & it miss firing!
This happened for the first time start of last week, so mt vauxhall dealers had the car last friday & was told the throttle body needed cleaning out & should be fine! all good in theory but this monday light appeared again so then went off tuesday but vauxhall had it in yesterday & was told that it had shown up that it was miss firing on the 3rd cylinder (previously the 2nd)
So got my car back yesterday & on the way to work this morning, stuck my foot down after pulling oit of a junction & happened again, with loss of power!
Vauxhalls answer to my problem, is that i am the problem! apparently im not driving my car hard enough?! this sounds like total BULL***T to me & so angry considering getting rid! has anyone else had this problem with the 1.8 engine in their mk4 or coupe?
