    Default 2.2 Direct going into limp mode

    My brother-in-law has got a 05 plate 2.2 direct petrol vectra which went into 'limp mode' today,spanner light came on also but no eml,managed to nurse it home,i changed the fuel filter as it felt like a fuel starvation problem,no change.Started and stopped it a few times which eventually got the spanner light out,car now revs but only if you gradually press the throttle,if you stick the foot down it won't rev.Took it a run again it's fine until 3000 rpm then it holds back until 4000 rpm then goes again.
    There is no misfire at all,i was thinking egr valve or air flow meter.
    Any suggestions guys??

    I dread this. Every time I feel a judder I prepare for the worst. Hope it sorted out soon though.
