    zafira 1.8 16v comfort

    wondering if any of you guys could help my dad owns a 1.8 16v comfort zafira and within the last week it has developed a fault it starts to judder and hesitate when goin up any kind of hill to a point where it is nearly stalling also the engine management light has came on he has took it to the garage but they could not find any kind of fault with the code reader and charged him 30 quid for 2 tins of flushing fluid but the problem still persists to apoint where he doesnt want to drive it for fear of it breaking down so if you guys could help it would be really appreciated thanks in advance graham11

    it could be any number of things mate... did you take it to a VX dealer? If the light pops on, it should have logged a fault.

    I suffered a similar prob with my coupe 1.8 however replaced the mass air flow meter an it cured my problem, mine used to hesitate when really putting your foot down e.g when pulling out of a junction or overtaking
