Alright folks, new here as i seen it was the only place really for zaffy owners
I bought the wife a 2003 Zafira GSi 2wks ago and its got a bit of a running issue. Ive used the search button but cant really find anyone with same symptoms.
Engine light on (one with spanner) - My mate at Vauxhall plugged in the tech2 and came up with a fault for boost sensor, now i didnt see the code or description but he said it was the one on the turbo. He carried out a dynamic test and it was clicking which showed the ecu and wiring seems ok but we both agreed it still may be faulty (I'm a VAG technician and have came across boost control solenoids that click when tested but dont actually work) anyway, i got another fitted, erased the fault and roadtested - still the same and light came back on.
Under load; surging, misfiring, sluttering, lack of power and wont rev past 5k.
now could a coil pack give a boost fault? or
can a boost solenoid/sensor(map) or afm give a misfire? or
a combination of each?
I'm gonna take it back to him at lunch and plug it in again and i will take a note of the fault code and description.
I was just wondering if my symtoms pointed to anything obvious?
