Hi

Bought a second-hand zaffy 1.6 16v comfort a year ago. Recently it started to "kangaroo" and cut out at junctions and at high speed. However, the engine management light only ever came on once and went back off a few days later. Drive the car below 40mph and it was fine.

So, I changed the EGR valve and also cleaned out the carb head and connecting hoses.

The car worked perfectly afterwards. no more problems at high speed or at junctions.

However, a few days ago, the engine light has come back on and stays on.

Strange thing is, the car is still perfect - no misfires, or loss of power at high speed - although the wife claims it doesn't like being driven slowly and seems sluggish to her between 20-30mph

any ideas - without putting it on a test ?

Hi,

How is your Zafira so far. I have the same problem with my Comfort which has this intermittent problem of cutting out and lumpy ride. I am contemplating changing the EGR valve myself but would like know from your experience whether this will cure the problem. Thanks
