    Default 2.2 vectra running a bit rough

    Hi all, im new here and in a bit of a quandry requiring some help with my 04 plate 2.2 vectra, it has been running a bit rought recently , now it starts but wont keep running , and if it does , when you try to drive off , it cuts immediately, had it checked when it stopped at services and it said throttle body code, the rac cleared it, then it came back with a different code, the patrolman said he had seen this before a couple of times, and thought it was a ecu problem , and it was just throwing up spurious codes, for the hell of it, so from what i ve been reading , i think i shud try the ecu route, and need to know can i just get a 2nd hand one and bolt it straight on, or does it not quite work like that, i have seen about tech 2 needs to do something to reset or reprogram it, so how do i go about getting that done without going to vauxhall, as i aint got much dough to go there , cos im sure the local scrapyard will have 1 somewhere, is this kind of problem frequent and common or have i just been unlucky
    any help much appreciated in advance

    right ok update, just phoned the local vauxhall dealer, told them i have a 2nd hand unit(dont know if its cleared or not,i think it is), and are they willing to program it to my car, they said yes £114 which is acceptable in my opinion, my question is , WILL they be ABLE to do it? cos they said basically they will try and do it , but if it fails then i still have to pay
    regards
