    Eek 2.2 cutting out, annoying!!

    hi guys, im a newbie and i need some help, my 2.2 veccy c has started to stall under braking, it has been dipping revs quite low recently during braking but now its cutting out?? it starts back up fine and drives with no probs, until i come to the next junction that is!! any help would be greatly appreciated. also do these have sensors fitted to the brake pads? thanks mark.

    Hi mate, try taking the throttle body off first and giving it a good clean, not a hard job, just disconnect the air pipe into it, then unclip the plug, 4 bolts to undo and off she pops. Just wipe it clean as they can get a bit gunked up, I know mine used to dip in revs, never cut out though, but was fine after I did this!

    Check the air filter is clean too!!

    As for the brake sensors, only one of the wheels has one, and I'm damned if I can remember which one, but I'm sure someone knows, I think it is the nearside wheel!

    Welcome Mark,

    I had a similar problem with my Vectra B and found out it was the Air Mass Sensor although i did get a warning light which the dealers read and diagnosed the problem. Do you have any intermittant lights coming on the dash? i would get it checked out anyway as it maybe something totally different unless anyone else has had similar problems with their Vec C and could confirm or advise differently.

    If you find out it is this I have a spare for sale somewhere, let me know! I bought one thinking that was what was wrong with mine, (different fault), turned out to be the lambda sensor in the end!

    criky you guys are quik! will give these ideas a go at the weekend and will let you know the outcome, as for the brakes, there is a sensor on the nearside but is it connected to one of the pads or is it fitted to the calliper? thanks again, mark.
