    Default John

    Hi i have a vectra 2.2 petrol auto 2005 engine z22yh i have had a new high pressure petrol pump fitted about 1000 miles ago but it still breaks down. Here is the story,from cold off on a run for about 30 miles no problems starting, runs impeccably cannot be faulted, stop for about 10 mins car starts then spanner light comes on engine stops. Car will not start have to wait about 20 mins (car sounds in engine bay a high pitched electronic whine when this stops car starts) could it be crankcase sensor? Any one any ideas please! Next step anyone got a traban for sale!only joking may as well get this one fixed it is a good car but a bit unreliable.thankyou for your help a great site john

    Hey John,
    First welcome to Vectra C. Your troubles sound the same as what I had with my 06 2.2 direct a few weeks ago. It turned out to be the fuel sensor regulator not the pump (the fuel sensor reg is on a silent recall so call local dealer and give them your VIN to check if its on recall, if it is Great its free).
    My car would start fine, drive great for 30-50 miles then spanner light and car dies. Had to wait 20 mins before it would start again but then die 50 yards down the road. The sensor overheats I think meaning it cuts fuel off, then when it cools down it works again.

    Hope it helps, if not on recall I think there only £30 part (not 100% sure on price lol)

    Oh and I have an auto too lol. First auto and loving it (never thought I would). Plus I think its a great car when its free from faults and ive heard apart from a few common fixable faults the engine is solid.
