    Welcome aboard!

    Could be one of a few things but my initial suspicion would be the CTS (Coolant Temperature Sensor) basically when this goes tits up it tells the ECU its cold and therefore needs to supply more juice....in doin so it floods and stalls.

    Other common faults would be the EGR Valve - if you have the early X18XE1 engine then youll have one of these - if u have the later Z18XE then its built into the throttle body. **Seeing as 00 is the changeover year then if u have the cat on the exhaust manifold then its the Z18XE or if its underslung on the front pipe underneath the car then its the early X18XE1**

    Therefore you wanna be giving the throttle body & EGR (if fitted) a good going over with carb cleaner (£4 a can from local motor factors) - check the HOW TO section on the main page for details on how to find the EGR etc....

    If this dont resolve the issue then Id be fairly sure its the CTS (tbh Id say it was this anyway) these are approx £10 from Vauxhall.

    Even if it is the CTS - its a bloody good idea to clean the TB/EGR anyway as it easily gets gunked up with carbon deposits over time.

    Sounds like the ICV (Idle Control Valve). If not that then give your EGR Valve a good clean out with carb cleaner.

    Wont be the ICV as the X18XE1 doesnt have one (its the odd one out in the X series, and if its the latter Z18XE then it wouldnt have an ICV anyway
