Hi all, I own an 03 reg zafira and just recently I've had problems starting to happen. Mainly loss of power and engine stalling when stopping at lights etc. My yellow engine is on and has been for a while. A mechanic turned it off for me but it has since come back on. I've been told that this is not serious as it doesn't affect the mot pass. But now I'm thinking it is something. Apart from getting ripped off by vauxhall dealer I'm wondering if any body knows a good solution to this. It's been serviced regulary and was a mobility car before I owned it. It had done 30k miles and now it's on 50k.
I can't help thinking that the fact it revs so high at high speeds is a massive reason to these problems. All the rev counter does go a bit loopy sometimesIt sometimes idles at 2000 revswhile stationary. Thanks for any advice.

Oh yeah it's a 1.6 model manual and I think it's too heavy for that engine size. At high speeds it revs at over 4000. Can this be adjusted?? Also a shot in the dark if I wanted to buy say 1.8 engine to put in it instead rather than buying a new car is this easy or too much hassle? Thanks again.

I have had similar probs to this on my 51 plate 1.6 club and on both occasions it was the erf valve I was led to believe.both times newreplacements were fitted by the local main agent at considerable cost ,I am certain that you could replace it yourself without to much bother if you can locate said valve.
