    I'd personally go for the IAC valve
    Go to vectra-sport.com and search that
    It's easy enough to clean, with the right tools
    Just be careful as the threads are easily broken

    The Idle Air Control valve gets dirty and stops working, revs jump about all over and if you dip the clutch at a junction the car will stall. Easy to take off clean and refit, new gasket is a few quid from a dealer.

    Think there is a "How To" on VS.

    Good luck.
