Hi over the past 24hrs my 1.6 zafira has lost its power won't go no faster the 60mph on the bypasses/motorway and it couldn't even get up a hill in 1st gear!! Had to roll back down it and turn round. There are no warning lights on the dash I have checked that the dash lights haven't been blanked off and they haven't. Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong?

Hi I have Vauxhall zafira 1.8 life... Recently it started making noise wen I start making noise wen in gear, in neutral it's fine... Any idea what could it b? Thanx luk forward to hear from u.its petrol.

Answers

I Could be wrong but it might be wise to have your gear box looked at...as it sounds like it could be that the teeth in your gear box are worn and not locking in properly hence the noise whilst your in gear and silence whilst your in neutral... if thats the case you may need a new gearbox it may be something simple tho like one of the bolts that hold your gearbox on place may be loose...or on the other hand it could be a clutch related problem...but to be safe...id have both clutch and gearbox looked at....as i say i may be wrong but from what you explain thats what i would advise...just a few things it may be that is causing your problems....hope this helps and hope you find the problem and get it sorted.

Can anyone help me with my 2009 Vauxhall Zafira B 1.6 Design. My central locking double lock (deadlock) stopped working. It happens before but after fiddling with the key fob while it still in the ignition I manage to make it work again, but I forgot how I manage to do it and the sequence. I have a habit of opening the door first before pulling the key out off the ignition switch, I think that is the reason why my double lock(deadlock) system stopped working again. can anyone knows hot to reset it to activate the double lock system again. Thank you

Perhaps you have an air lock,try filling the bottle and run the engine and when the bottle empties refill it and keep repeating it and see if the water level stabilizes.at the same time check for leaks. sean from Northamptonshire

Chris, Buckinghamshire

My 02 plate petrol Zafira recently lacked power when accelerating and the management light came on - I took it to garage who then fitted an 02 sensor as apparently that was the error code. A week later it's doing the same thing - someone mentioned vacuum pipe ? Any ideas as I've heard some horror stories of people paying fortunes for various supposed fixes without actually fixing faults. I'm about to sell it but would like to fix it first if not to costly - Thanks in advance
