    Have been having problems for sometime now with slight stutter on the engine
    whilst driving, more noticeable whilst travelling at lower speeds in higher
    gears - around town driving, just a slight stutter, enough to make the car
    feel as though its pulling back. Had initially thought it was the injectors
    that needed cleaning, I usually stick some injector cleaner in with the
    petrol although I don't notice a great improvement.
    Having read various posts on this newsgroup I am wondering now if it is the
    Crankshaft Position Sensor that could be causing the problem as some of the
    symptoms mentioned seem relevant, Have checked the fault codes this morning
    & their are non logged although warning light did come on last week when I
    was returning from work but re-set when I turned off the ignition &
    re-started.
    Would appreciate any advice that you could offer! am I looking in the right
    direction changing the CPS or does it sound like something else may be the
    cause? Also what kind of price would I be looking at paying for a CPS form a
    Vauxhall parts department.

    Thanks

    Have you checked that the airway to the engine is clear? Air filter/throttle
    body/inlet manifold etc...?

    I am having exactly that problem with my Zafira - still under warranty
    ( we all know what that's worth these days though ).

    Vauxhall dealer initially cleaned throttle body - better but still not
    right.

    Today they have changed the ignition module - I'll let you know how
    things go.
