    Default Urgent help needed

    Hi I've got a problem with my 02 2.2 vectra. I've been having some problems with it being sluggish so thought I'd give the throttle body a clean as it looked a bit soiled. Once I cleaned it the car now won't start it try's too but just won't kick in. The petrol light keeps going funny aswell now says there's no petrol in it then its back up to quarter again. Anyone have any ideas

    Matt, your pic is from an ebay sale http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAUXHALL-V...-/280979820199

    so as you are already aware its a TPS (throttle position sensor) for Z22YH engine..

    The problem you describe do sound like a TPS fault, if you check your fault codes the TPS will more than likely be giving you an fault code if it is at fault.

    still got the problem all the car will do is turn go to fire up and die. Could it be the coil pack or spark plugs not giving it a spark? think im just clutching at straws
    Does anyone have any ideas need to get the car back running
