    Default Engine Fault?? Need Help Please !!!

    Hi i just got a Vectra 1.9CDTI 120 estate ( 06 reg) and having a wee problem with it and was hoping someone could point me in correct direction as to a diagnosis or repair.
    I will try to describe symptoms as best i can. and bear in mind i am a vehicle engineer ( not cars!!).
    it is an intermitten fault.
    it happens mainly when i have changed to second gear and accelerating up.
    usually revs is reading between 2000 and 3000 rpm.
    rev counter seems to stay steady.
    is like car has "kangaroo fuel", i e stuttering, burping etc. but not serious enough to cause rev drop or engine warning light etc.
    is a strange fault and doesnt always do it
    i had window open today and it sounded like something going off and on then staying on when running ok again
    hope this helps????
    ian
