    Astra 03 Plate 1.6 8 valve power surge

    Astra 03 Plate 1.6 8 valve power surge
    Hi everyone, please can anyone help! I have a very annoying prob with my ASTRA!

    Very Very Occasionally, when I let go of the throttle peddle, the car jumps, this sometimes causes the car to stall, this has happened once on the motorway with my young family on-board, the car will retsart after about 6 seceonds of turning the key and reving the nuts out of it! This has been a very well looked after car, main dealer history etc and purchased through a main dealer as well! very annoying problem this, normally it is ok, but sometimes judders when you let go off the throttle, and as said sometimes stalls!

    Great website! anyhelp would be very much appreciated!

    Thanks
    Matt

    Throttle body and (if it is there) the EGR and perhaps ICV need a good clean...

    And what's the crack using VauxhallOwnersNetwork emoticons? We've got our own!
