    Could try changing the fuel filter? Oh just relised , you changed it twice already.

    Good work, Saves paying a garage to do it.

    Have you checked brake wear, tyre pressures / depth, screen wash. coolant level, brake fluid level?

    When was the brake fluid last changed?

    It should be changed every 2 years - Vauxhall's recommended interval.

    Default Servicing.

    mines approaching 3 yrs old and currently at 33k miles.

    I think I will do more than just an oil change next time.

    Just replaced my brake pads. Back pads pretty well gone, Front still Ok, but replaced all while doing it.

    Where is the boost sensor located ??

    If its last service was when it was a 2 years old/2nd service then it should have had all the filters done and a brake fluid change. Oil & filter/interim service is 1st year - 3rd year - 5th year etc etc.

    Yeah, but it wasn't done at (stealer) dealers,
    Did, Oil, oil filter, fuel filter, air filter, pollen filter. Don't do brake fluid, my old landy 15 yrs old, never had brake fluid changed, still stops. Mind you takes half a day to get it going.

    Where is the boost sensor ????
