    Default Serious lack of power 2.2 Vectra C

    Hi, can someone help me with a problem, my car has developed a fault where there is a lack of power up to 3K on the revs, plus it smokes worse than Dot Cotton, i have been informed that the Throttle Body is knackered, i have tried to get a replacement but the one i got is missing one of the sensors and Vauxhall dont sell them seperately, does anyone know where i can find one to save myself nearly £300.

    Vehicle : Vauxhall

    Trim : very

    Engine : Z19DTH

    The throttle bodies do go but generally close and stop the car starting or jam in possition. If it is jammed, you can take the rubber hose next to the battery off and see how it is sitting. Removing the plate is possible but generally results in a very rough shut down which is bad for the transmission. They don't need Tech2 programing, so you can get one of any Vectra-C 2.2DTI or Saab 2.2DTI. Might just need a good clean out or it might be nothing to do with it, the EGR is much more common.
