    Exclamation Dipping in power

    Evening all,

    Noticed this evening that when pulling away there is a drop in power, this only lasts 1-2 seconds but has got me worried about what could be wrong.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance
    Ben

    EGR sticking?

    Split VAC pipes?

    A few suggestions. Have you had codes read?

    And what engine do you have?

    I have a 1.8 vectra SRI, plugged in the code reader and it shows no faults.

    I know nothing about engines at all....

    How long have you had the car?
    When you move off, is it a straight line or do you need to make considerable steering input?
