    Mine did this in blackbpool a few weeks ago.
    Just for fun, start it up when cold, then put both your front demister, and rear demister on at the same time.

    This seemed to slightly re-produce the misfire/knock for me.
    When it did it in blackpool however it was a pig, and after a quick rev, woudlnt settle back down to normal idle. Only ever done it once, and never came back that bad since.

    update on this problem never does it when cold only when warm more so on light throttle and under load feels like an injector going down but which one is the question at 200 quid each could be a dear guess .spoke to someone at vauxhall technical today they said to fit a blanking gasket between egr and manifold the fiat one sounds a good idea got to be worth a try . give me back the zafira anyday much better motor.

    Paul'
    I had a brand new 1.9ctdi Zafira doing the same. After much messing about with dealer i was told by vauxhall, "It's a design feature, not a fault". Needless to say the car was gone within weeks. I think it's to do with the DPF cleaning itself at the same time as the EGR operates, but Vx don't seem to be able to cure it. Went back to Petrol in a Vectra. Costs more but more reliable!!( So Far))

    Cheers M8
