    Thumbs up Vectra 2.2 Direct SRI power loss

    Hi Guys,
    I have a 54 plate vectra 2.2 SRI direct (petrol), and when i joined the motorway coming home from work last night it started juddering quite badly, and slowed right down to about 20mph. I got onto the hard shoulder and it didnt want to pick up the revs, and seemed to be misfiring badly. Then the engine management light appeared.
    I switched it off, then started it up again straight away, it was fine - i drove it home no problem whatsoever but the management light stayed on. Went out again this morning and there still seems to be no problem with it, but the management light is still on....

    I did notice a couple of weeks ago that it juddered very briefly on the motorway but cured itself, and no lights came on, so i presume that it is related to the current fault.

    Anybody any ideas what this could be? I rely on the car to get me to work on a 20 mile motorway journey each day, and am paranoid about this happening again...


    All help gratefully received! Thanks in advance...

    Hi mate. Sounds like the coil pack.

    I had the same thing happen to me but it was a cracked plug. If you find it's the coil pack i have a spare i could sell you
