    201 astra 1.6 cutting out

    Hello,
    I have a 2001 astra 1.6 16v sxi(ecotec z16xe motor) has been great up until recently.its cutting out everytime you slow down or stop.starts again first time and does it again at the next junction/roundabout.fine from startup untill around 2/3 kms from home.
    has been to local garage twice.1st time they replaced the coolant temp sensor as it read faulty and cleaned out the trottle body.was great for a week.2nd time they cleaned trottle body,cleaned up the egr valve,checked for fault codes(told me none) ect.was fine for 3 weeks.
    ive researched this problem and to me(and im thick) it appears to be a/ignition coil pack is breaking down b/egr valve buggered c/crankshaft or camshaft sensor breaking down.Is it likley to be the things ive mentioned or is there another likley culprit?Its a really fustrating problem on a nice car.local garage dodnt seem to be able to get to grips with it and vauxhall maindealer is expensive and snotty to boot.
    any advice/help greatly appreciated

    most likely your EGR are valve because cleaning them only sorts the problem for a few weeks before it starts again, I'd start with the EGR, you can source them off Ebay and fit them yourself
    Astra is coming back..bigger badder and better
    ..or is it? Thinking of buying a coupe

    As above - EGR is the likely culprit

    Heres a list of compatible examples on ebay (part number being 17200272)
