    Default Car "stuttering"

    Hi,

    My vectra 2006 elite 2.2 direct Injection has a problem,

    It happens in most gears and the best way to describe it is it feels as though the car is running out of fuel or the fuel isnt getting through.

    It happens usually when i put my foot about a quarter on the accelerator the car pulls then doesnt then does again, it keeps doing this. if i put my foot right down problem goes away.

    any ideas?

    Hi,

    Ok car has been in to garage plugged in to the machine and had no faults. Changed the spark plus for some new, expensive ones. Changed the fuel filter changed the fuel from Tesco to BP

    Car still exactly the same

    Changed Coilpack

    Car exactly the same.

    Car drives in 1st ok, change to second from about 2500 rmp through till about 4500 rpm it feels like an old car with the choke out intermitting loss of about 15% power on pull. This happens in all the gears through and including 6th

    Mechanic has no idea, do any of you folk?

    sounds like the high pressure fuel pump or the regulator ring vx and see if your car is covered by the recall
