Hello again -
Thank you for your reply -
First my sincere apologies that I could only just get back to you , I was unexpectedly off yesterday Im afraid ..
Ok with the full info that you have given me, there is a known fault with this particular model that will give exactly the symptoms you describe - Vauxhall - as a company know about this issue - seemingly the individual dealer either doesn't or didn't think on about it - but Vauxhall issued a bulletin on the issue and I will give it you to help you to get this sorted.
The basic fault that you have is with a faulty / worn fuel flow control valve which is located on the diesel pump. When its faulty - as yours is , it affects fuel flow to the injectors and causes cut outs as you describe -so it basically needs that renewing.
This fault will often cause a fault light and fault code - but not always - so I suspect this is why the dealer has not considered it at all ( they do tend to reply heavily on fault lights etc - ie, - no faulty light / fault codes, we dont know! ).. The bulletin I will give you explains all this...inc the modification- but as yours is so intermittent, its evidently in the early stages of failure - so not so far out of "spec" to cause a fault light and code -
So here is the bulletin info for you - Mention this to the dealer ( or whatever garage you might use ) and renewing that part should see this cured altogether for you ;)BulletinAffected vehicles
Problem ( All or some of )
