    Default Zafira 1.8 Fault

    Hi all,

    My wife has complained that her car is in "limp" mode and has no power.
    It has happened several times intermittantly, but she has only just mentioned to me that this only ever happens when the engine is cold. ie left overnight or not used for several hours.

    I checked for codes, forgot to write it down though, but remember it saying fuel trim, bank 1

    1.8 petrol Zafira 2003.

    TIA

    That's the one!

    I've been looking up the problem, but there has been many conflicting answers.
    I've sourced, but yet to collect a used MAF to try, is that recommended or not?

    Any other suggestions would be gratefully received

    Just an update, I bought an OE MAF for the Zafira and fitted it 2 days ago.

    I spoke to a local garage who advised that after I changed the MAF, to disconnect the battery for 20 mins. This will clear any existing faults stored and when reconnected, the car will re-learn parameters etc.

    The wife has said that so far, the car has not played up or gone into limp mode or anything, so fingers crossed that's the end of it......


    I will update in a week or two and let you know the score!


    Thank you to those that have offered their advice and wisdom, much appreciated
