Hi everyone, Im new to the board and my current problem has prompted me to register.
I have an Astra CDti 150 - 05 plate with 48000 miles on clock, I've owned the car now for approx 4 months and took out an extended dealers warranty.
The problem has been ongoing for approx 2 months, it generally occurs when in a low gear (usually when pulling away from drive or junction in 1st). There is a complete lack of power to the extent it sometimes stalls or bumbles along at approx 5-10mph, there is also a strong reeke. its as if the engine just dies however the engine is still running, the problem is intermittent and power can restore instantly leading to a pretty dangerous situation with instant acceleration. It can go fine for a week or so then can happen a number of times in a few days.
I can not see any pattern in when it occurs. Ive had it in to 3 garages and had the inlet manifold changed however the problem is still happening and the garages can not find any further fault.
Has anyone experienced anything similar or heard of this problem before? I have a dealers warranty and propose to speak to them with regard to what they would propose I do next.
Thanks in advance for any help.
