    Default Zafira B 58 1.6 Life - Tech help

    Hi,

    I know this is the wrong forum, but wonder if any Vauxhall people can help before I hit the dealer on Friday. Dont want to waste a day of work if I can help it

    My car has now got 3500 miles and normally get 26-28 MPG.

    Basics are I get between 26-32Mpg even on a steady run. I spoke to the garage and they will charge if they dont find a fault so am looking for some help.

    I have noticed some strange happenings with tickover.

    Start from cold. Revs to 1800 on start up and falls down to 1200 straightaway. This I believe is normal

    Jowever start from warm. Sometimes revs to 1800 and sticks, until the trottle is blipped quickly. If you rev it it doesnot fall. Only if you kick the gas quickly on and off. Other times it falls down to 800-900 straight away

    The guy in the garage seems to remember a service annoucement on the second item. Can anyone help?

    Regards

    Barry
