    Is the engine management light on?

    If not it's not the Crankshaft Sensor.

    More likely your Idle Air control valve is dirty, and needs a damn good clean.

    I had exactly the same problem

    I took it to a garage and the problemw as the EGR Valve (Common problem on all Astras)

    I believe you can clean them, but i just bought a new one as mine was cream crackered

    Was there any need to create a new thread when you already have one up and running?
