    astra van 1.7dti running fault. help if poss

    Hi their. am new to this site so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I've got a year 2000 astra van with 1.7dti engine. every now and then, i'll put foot down on throttle and there's no power atall. it just doesn't rev up and stays at the same speed, then as though i've just flicked a switch, it sorts itself out and builds up speed like it supposed to. It seems to happen more when i'm driving it nice like a granny.

    Thanks for any suggestions
    chris

    This could be many things, but do the basics first like a service and inspect for possible air injestion into the fuel system along holes and splits in your vacuum pipes. If this fails to solve the problem get a fault code reader on it, this may then narrow down the problem further.
