    Hi there its like it is missing slightly but vibrates on acceleration and at a stand still when the engine is revved.The rev counter flickers up and down slightly when idling,cheers dean.

    It Could be the Dual Mass Flywheel breaking up or the counter rotating balancer shafts may have jumped a tooth on the sprocket. Try to PM Benny on here, he's a z22se mechanic.

    Check this kink. Man on the moon had the same symptoms. Now fixed. http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=24796

    Default looks like the same problem

    Hi Lindsay,

    It seems that i have the same problem or something similar with my veccy (2.2 Elegance) but when i accelerate the car vibrating and that rumble noise start. a few different garages ( as i'm travelling around europe with the problem) says it could be something coming from the gear shaft or somthing like that (sorry my technical terms are ****). Was wondering if you manage to sort yours out as it might be the same.

    Take care

    Have you tried revving the engine out of gear? Mine still does it then,but i have noticed a slight improvement since having my front tyres changed!Maybe this is a common problem on 2.2 elegances.How long has yours been like this for?
