    Default 2.2 Feel PROPA flat

    Hi guys, Just bought a 2.2 Vectra C SRi on a 53!

    I used to have about a two years ago a 1.8 SRi Vec c and the 2.2 feels flat low down the revs, doing 15mph in second gear and if i put my foot to the floor its crap! nothing seems to happen!

    Also when going up a slip road to join a motorway, without i take the car upto 4.5k/5k revs it just doesnt pull..

    Ive had the car a week, and i used to drive a V6 mondeo, and was prepaired for the power drop, but to be honest this 2.2 seems just as quick as the 1.8 I had!

    Is there somthing wrong with the car, 3/4/5th gears on the motorway are fab the pull is unreal even in 5th at about 70-80 it will pull on quite strong!

    anyone shed some light on this?

    Its not misfireing and its running fine no blows on exhust no warning lights on ...

    It sounds like there is a a problem mate if I boot mine in second it takes off

    Why dont you try taking off the EGR valve and giving it a clean?

    How many miles has it done?

    I know mate the Direct has a bit more power and Torque but I have driven a 2.2 (SE) as well try cleaning the egr though that may give you some back if its not been cleaned in a long while

    Vehicle : SRi


    Engine : Z22SE (2.2 Petrol)

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 137000

    Default

    Blank the EGR £3.50, take the TB off and give it a good clean, and a service can make the world of difference as well. The 2.2 is a long stroke 2.0 so its never going to fly at low revs but keeping it all clean gives it a helping hand.
