    Default 03 2.2 Sri problems (Z22SE)

    Hi everyone,

    Looking for some help please! Ive been having a few running issues with my car over the past few months, was loosing power, cutting out, revs bouncing at tick over etc.
    Had the car looked at and it had 3 codes on it (dont know what they were) Said that one was cam possition sensor? Cleared them and only one came back after a run out. In the end it was recomended that the coild pack was at fault, so replaced that and all was well until a week or so later when the alternator packed in! so replaced that as well and all was well again for a few weeks but now when driving there is a loss of power for a second or 2 then it comes back and all is fine again. This is totally random, somedays it doesnt happen at all.
    Any ideas?
    Also ive cleaned the throttle body and the EGR valve plus blocked the EGR valve off on sunday and fuel seems to be vanishing at a much more rapid rate than normal, Is this the norm when blocking the valve off?

    Been having a search and seen a few posts about fuel regulators and pumps but only on the 2.2 direct yet still suffering the same issues?

    Cheers for any help or ideas

    id start with plugs and coolant temp sensor as they are cheap and should be changed anyway

    what does the engine sound like on cold start up? any rattle that goes when warm or after a few seconds?
