    Default 2.2 direct cutting out

    I have a 2006 2.2 direct elite which has been ultra reliable up until now, when driving home from work it felt a little lumpy but the roads were greasy and wet and it was jumping all over the place so I thought it was that but as i approached a junction and slowed down it cut out, i restarted it by bump starting as i did not need to completely stop but as i got to the next one it cut out completely.
    There was no spanner or engine management light and it started straight away, it did the same for the next 3/4 stops and i managed to get home but as i pulled up outside my house it stopped doing it, i drove around the block several times and it has not done it again, any ideas?

    It could be your fuel regulator.
    Be aware there was a recall on this and if you take it to a dealer they will check if the regulator can be changed FOC under the recall.

    Thank's for the advice, I should have said I had it changed on recall almost 2 years ago, I by chance mentioned it to my brother in law who told me he has a friend who is a vauxhall technician (talk about keeping key information to yourself), anyway one quick call and he was here with his box of tricks and has diagnosed a mass flow air meter problem, it is not registering any reading at all, he is going to get me a price and fit it so fingers crossed that will cure it

    Totally feed up with my 2.2 direct (04 reg) Elite.If i could afford to get shot of it i would. Had problems with engine cutting out and going into limp home mode.It my own expense thanks to VX, I had to pay for new H.P Fuel Pump and Fuel Pressure Regulator.Had recall 4 weeks ago to change Fuel Pressure Regulator (now changed twice) ,this has a white dot on it and still the car stutters at high speed.
    Any idea's what i should do next?
    P.S Wish Watchdog would reopen this topic on the 2.2. Direct.
