    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 1.9CDTi

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 65,000

    Default Strange problem.

    Has anyone got any ideas what could be wrong with my car? It's a Signum 2.2 Direct (Petrol). If I drive it really steady everywhere, it's fine. As soon as I decide to open it up a wee bit, it pulls fine, but has a hicup. Kinda like it loses all power for a fraction of a second and then is fine again. The spanner light pretty much always comes on when it does this too. I'm hoping to get it to a garage to have the codes read as my code reader doesn't work with it. Last night, it did it's little hicup as I was overtaking a truck, but this time it ran like a bag of spanners. Went into limp mode. After an engine restart, it was like it was on 3 cylinders for a while. Left it a couple of hours then it was fine again...... Any ideas appreciated.

    Chad.

    Thanks for the input so far guys. Had the codes read.... Only one code in there and it said "Fuel Pressure Regulator". This had already been replaced by the previous owner not too long ago if I remember correctly. I'll have a look through the receipts and try and find it. The only thing that concerns me is that maybe it's an old code that was in there from when it was first replaced and hadn't been reset. But where would you suggest buying one from for best price and quality? And what price will I be looking at? I'll do the work myself so just the price of the part if anyone knows it?

    Thanks again,
    Chad.
