    Sounds like could be a fuel pump problem. Common issue on the 2.2 direct engine
    Next time it does it, stick it in Neutral and see if you can go the full rev range.

    Have you had the "fuel pressure regulator" recall done at the dealers? If you havent or not sure its been done, then phone your local vx dealership and give them your vin number and ask if the recall is still outstanding. It could very much be this thats playing up....It was on mine with then same symptoms.
    But then a few months later the HP fuel pump went and they cost around £550-600 fitted. I only paid £411 as I have a trade club card for being a full member.

    So my advice is call the dealer ask about recall, If its outstanding get it done.
    Check what fuel pump you have, if its a siemens then I would pay the £15 to become a full member and get a trade club card as you are prob gonna need it lol.

    All the best buddy
