    Problems Misfiring

    I've had lots of problems with my astra and got a dealeship to blank off my egr valve and I've had problems with it still misfiring. A garage changed my coilpack to resolve it. but it still misfires when my petrol tank gets low. I took it back to the garage but it worked alright that day but these fault codes were saved.
    0302 Cylinder 2 misfire detected. Not present
    0300 Misfire detected At low fuel level. Not present
    0200 Random/Multiple cylinder misfire detected. Not present

    Just wondered if anyone had similar problems

    What engine do you have? It helps people to point out common faults.

    Funny you should say that about the low fuel thing, my EGR has recently played up so i blanked it, and when my fuel is low the car feels like it could be easy to stall when pulling away...

    Well, in my case... fuel light and just before.
    Bearing in mind fuel filter was done 2k ago and usually use a high octane fuel as i was told it usually has better cleaning additives in it
