1999-2005 Zafira Club 16V DOHC 1.6 Nothing but engine related problems. Particularly, idling concerns. Checked on the Vauxhall Mig Website. My car is prone to "breathing" issues.

The ERG valve seems to go wrong every year, leaving me stranded and waiting for a pick up truck.

Even when I leave them the problem occures again, but I didn't want to go back to get charged even more.
