    on most cars you would first check your spark plugs. give them a clean and check the gap. check the coil pack for cracks or loose wires and leads. might aswell wont cost you nothing

    As above but the zlet doesn't have leads i've heard the AFM can cause the same symptoms but i would go and check the spark plugs if it has a nice little brown streak on the white ceramic then i would say the coil pack has gone bye bye,hope that helps

    Hi mate glad you might have got it sorted, mines doing the same thing but only happens when its warm and have bin booting it for a while, but mine sounds like a subaru when the engine management/exhaust emissions light comes on, booked it in at vauxhall for friday i know its the expensive route but have tryed everything else, wrong time of year but its gotta be done i suppose.
