    Default Vectra c 1.8 SRI bogging down under acceleration

    As the title really.......

    My sons Vectra C 1.8 SRI needed a new wheel bearing a day or so ago.........got one off Ebay c/w the hub for £40 and another £30 to fit....all good!

    While I was driving it I had memories of my mates old 1.8 Cavalier SRI from years ago ( a flying machine ) and decided to floor it..

    Well, she just kinda bogged down ( almost nose dived ) then gained speed and then BAM we were away.
    I knew something wasn't right, so.....
    I took her to Vauxhallparts up in Rosyth and saw Daryll there for a diagnostic on Tech2.....He ran it and some spurious code came up whcih he cleared but it was just the same.

    I suspected the MAF sensor and he said he had one in stock, brought it out and changed it for us, did a road test and wow.....she was back to where she should be, such a difference.

    He only took £30 for the diagnostic AND for the part and fitting.

    Kudos to him I say.....Job done.

    Hope it helps someone else with the same issue
