    Default Vectra C check engine HELP!

    Hello everyone

    I just bought a Vectra C 2003 , 1.8 petrol( i don't know where to look to see what is the code of the engine) .
    I was very happy with my car the first 2 days but yesterday I saw that check engine is on and when I start the car it loses engine idle but not very badly then when it warms up it's okay. I've read the codes with the break and acceleration method and it gives me :

    -P0170 Fuel Trim Malfunction (Bank 1)
    -P0134 O2 Sensor Circuit No Activity Detected (Bank 1 Sensor 1
    -P0110 Intake Air Temperature Circuit Malfunction
    -P0335 Crankshaft Position Sensor A Circuit Malfunction


    I am very sad because of this problems. Can someone tell me what is the reason? Is it the Maf sensor ? Lamda sensor or the egr? Or is something worst then this

    Please help me !

    -P0170 Fuel Trim Malfunction (Bank 1) - fuel mixture is weak/rich on bank 1 (before the catalyst) this is normally caused by an intake air leak or sensor fault such as throttle position sensor or air mass meter,check exhaust for any leaks too,or it could be lambada sensor

    -P0134 O2 Sensor Circuit No Activity Detected (Bank 1 Sensor 1 ) Basically means the oxygen sensor is inactive,could be related to above sensor

    -P0110 Intake Air Temperature Circuit Malfunction - MAF sensor ? check all plugs going to MAF sensor

    -P0335 Crankshaft Position Sensor A Circuit Malfunction - Crankshaft sensor

    I would get codes reset then read them again in case some are old,it could be all intake codes are related to the MAF sensor but i would wait for another opinion

    How do I reset them by taking out the batery? Next week should my scanner arrive U480 just purchased from ebay hope that could be more helpful . The problem is that it hunt on idle when I start it and also when I keep a constantly Rpm . For example with the cruise on at 2000 rpm I fell like it's breaking than it accelerate again.

    To me its all MAF related but cant be 100% sure go to a scrappy and try and get sensor or buy that one above and try it.
    Like i say its a hard one to solve as it could be just a leaking exhaust or a sensor so its a process of elimination i'm afraid

    I am just hopping that it's only the sensors or maybe the exhaust . Also i could't find how to clean the egr for 1.8 in the "How 2 " . Can you also tell me where to look to see the engine code . Couldn't find that also . I am just start learning cause it's my first vauxhall
