    confused symptoms of a dual mass fly

    hi every one.
    what are the symptoms of a faulty dual mass fly wheel on a 2002/52 vectra 2.2i 16v sri petrol?
    have been to a hell of a lot of garages including dealers but no one can seem to figure my problem.
    have had a few points towards the fly wheel but don't want to change that and it turns out its not that thats causing the problem.
    my problem is that when i accelarate i get a viberation like a missfire between 1500-2000 rpm.
    through the rest of the rpm's its not that bad.
    i've had the car fully serviced and also changed the coil pack as some wanabe mechanic told me to do but made no differance at all.
    also when the car is stationary it idles as if it requires a service or tune up.
    the problem some times goes away and when it returns it feels like some thing has slipped.
    can any one help???
    thanks,zed.

    Clean both the egr valve and the throttle body.

    Just inside the throttle body mate, without taking all my induction pipework off it goes into the bottom of the TB

    VX field remedy for the 2.2 on the vec C is to blank the valve off and turn it off via Tech 2.
    Does this sound familiar?
