2001 Holden Vectra Repair Question
Asked on October 12, 2011
My wife has just bought a 2.2 automatic gl. it goes well but is idling very roughly and making a tapping sound.
The Vectra has plenty of zip and everything works OK.However it is idling very roughly,hesitating and missing but it has never cut out altogether.It also makes a distinct tapping noise,which obviously would be tappet noise I assume.We have had the car for three weeks now,and it hasnt let us down.Would a tune up such as new spark plugs and injector clean fix the idling problem do you think?As far as the tapping,if the tappets need repair/replace or whatever they do would that be a major and expensive repair.Regards.

Do a tune and get the iac cleaned, check for vacuum leaks and run a diagnostic scan for any unresolved fault codes, to replace the lash adjusters is a bit of a job, as all should be replaced at one time, how may Km's has it done,you say 167 Miles or is that Km's? as it may be due for a timing belt kit as well.
