Am a newbie here, tempted to buy a 2002 Zafira 1.8xe Engine automatic transmission version with only 30k miles on it. The owner is selling it cheap at approx USD 5,000.00 bec the engine refuses to rev above idle speed. Its as if the throttle pedal is disconnected from the engine. The local Opel/Chevy dealer says this is probably an ECU problem that will cost USD 1,250 to fix! Has anyone else seen the same symptoms with other probable causes?
Is there a reputable source of remanufactured ECU's? What price?
I love the car but terrified by some postings of difficult to fix electrical system and steering pump/rack repair costs, troubles etc.
Thanks in advance..
