    Unhappy Z22YH unsmooth idle

    Hello again!

    It seems like I have one of the many Z22YH with continuous faults and problems .

    Since I own the car the idle it is not smooth. I mean..it stays around 750rpm but you can feel the car trembling a little bit wile idling, and it is very anoying. I thought that it is because the 02 sensor(I had also a fault code) so I changed the sensor and...no change.
    Right after that I had a fault code regarding the pressure regulator. Bought a new one and....no change.
    Done a full service: oil, air filter, oil filter, spark plugs...no change.

    Any ideas?

    Plus the anoying swirl flaps problem. I tried to glue them but it seems that at this engine they are quite hard to reach.

    Please help because I am starting to feel sorry that I bought a Vauxhall...

    Thank you!

    it means that I need to wait. at the moment I live on one of the Scottish Islands and I cannot find super unleaded here . but in 2 months time I'll be back on the mainland.

    Try cleaning the throttle body as the 2.2 has no idle control valve. Any gunk or dirt around the butterfly can affect idle.

    Hi Danhariga,

    I too have a Z22YH engined-Vectra. I have also noticed this ''trembling'' idle but only since I have had the emission light on with fault code P1112 stored.
    Do you have any fault codes stored??? My car will be having the Swirl Flap modification kit fitted within the next 2 weeks which I hope will solve the emission
    light trouble. My pressure regulator was changed in the recall, there was a Watchdog episode about it. I can give you the GM part number for the mod kit if you are planning to have it fitted to solve your problem??
