Check the throttle position sensor. Unplug it and see how she idles. If okay, replace it. Easy job, I have done it on my car.

Interesting. My car had slight difficulty going from second to third and again, it was intermittent. I removed the console below the gear stick ( it just pops out) and sprayed all the linkages with WD-40. I done this about four months ago and it's been fine since! Hope this helps.

Lol. Buckfast is great for cleaning your engine too. You get an extra +10hp from all the caffeine in it! :P

Ahhh,yes...Lager! Unfortunately, there are a lot of Vauxhall (spit) owners in my area and their tipple of choice is 'Buckfast tonic wine and a 'single skinner'! (whatever that is!) :lol: I am sure that this cocktail of substances has jaded their view of what is a good or not so good motor.
