    Default need some advice on my 2.2 16v vec

    when i put my foot down in 3rd gear doing about 60 then move to 4th gear i have a flat spot, it doesnt happen when am doing about 30 in 3rd changing 2 4th, any ideas on what it could be and how i can sort it out. any ideas would be great.

    also when pulling of my drive, my front drivers side coil spring snapped, is this a common fault with the vecs. is it worth buying genuine vauxhall parts
    many thanks

    Not sure about your engine fault, but coil springs are common failures on many cars especially this time of year.
    The increase in potholes and sleeping policemen combined with the cold which makes metal more brittle is affecting most cars. I've certainly changed more springs in the past 5 years than the previous 10. Genuine Vx lasted until now, if you are going to my aftermarket springs buy from Spax or similar not the cheap Asian imports.
