Hi,
I have a zafira b 1.6 petrol xe1 engine

The fault is hunting on idle.
Engine management light on, code read showing as no specific code just engine running lean I believe.
Using very high amounts of oil.
Very slight amount of oil at the bottom of spark plug 3

So far I have replaced both the 02 sensors.
New throttle body
Maf sensor
Full service.
Coil pack
Checked for external oil leaks and there aren't any.
Looks like a fairly new cat and head gasket was done around 2k miles ago

Not long had the car and really at my wits end.
The mechanic will be removing the manifold as the next attempt.

Any thoughts please guys I've pumped to much money in now to give up lol
Happy new year

Hi

My daughters car is displaying the same problems (ie:- hunting on idle and using high amounts of oil).
Has removing the Manifold highlighted the problem/have you managed to sort your issues out?
Thanks

Hi,
Manifold removed and cleaned, gasket replaced and breathers all checked.
Rocker cover removed, checked everything. Put it all together and still the same issue.
To be honest we are just going to live with it and get a year's use before before worrying about it.
