    Question Cutting out

    I recently replaced my 106 for a Astra SXI 4 months ago and everything was good until 2months ago

    the problem is the car starts jerking and shuddering on normal driving then when it comes to slow down ie roundabouts and junctions the engine just cuts out

    any1 got any ideas on what the problem is?
    any help would be great cheers

    do you have any warning lights.

    Could you give us some more info such as engine type and age of the car? a more descriptive account of what happens etc. The more info we get the nore help we could be. :-)

    right, i think it could be your airflow sensor. do a search on here, they have been done to the death, everyone knows that they are weak and are prone to going wrong. see if you can borrow one from a mate.

    Failing that pop down to Vauxhall and get it Tech 2'd

    Is it in warrenty still?

    Also give your throttle body a clean with some carb cleaner
