    Any idea one jerking action when driving in 2,3,4 gears?

    Had a problem with my car and it went in for service, mot etc.

    No faults could be found for it but the problem seems to be getting worse now.

    Basically while driving in 2nd,3rd or 4th gear even if your at the right speed for the gear, the car jerks and jumps like your going to slow for the gear. Really annoying as it always does it now and I cant think what else it could be..

    Anyone else had this problem?

    Its a 1.6 16v astra mk4.

    Anyone?

    Also revs itself between 800 back down to say 700 while idling, and seems like a bit of fuel starvation. Cant think what it could be..

    With a decent brand or a cheap ebay one? The eBay cheapies are not worth it, they can cause the same problems as the removed EGR valve. Delphi ones or OEM ones are the only worthwhile choice.

    Hi Guys I'm having the same problem with my 05 1.6 Design. I have no idea what is. My car jerked quite violently tonight when going to pick the mrs up from work. At the time i was in 5th gear going at 50mph. It was quite scary as it felt like i was being pushed back in my chair a number of times.

    On other occassions it has done it in 3rd or 4th gear. It's really quite annoying and when i spoke to someone at a Vauxhall dealership they told me it could down to a number of reasons and to let it get worse.

    Hmmm, im getting the same issue, was thinking it could be the icv or the egr, but i think one of them was replaced when i first got the car 2 years ago, suppose it could still have gone tho.
