Injectors are clean?
Catalytic sensor?
C18XE, X18XE, C18XEL PETROL ENGINES
Which type is yours?

As for do it yourself repair I would suggest to be adviced with opel repair software (03/2008) or autodata with 135 euros each

Complaint: Hesitation while driving around between 40 - 80 km/h with constant speed. While accelerating the engine hesitates up to the 3000 RPM. Also during deceleration the engine hesitates. Above 120 km/h there are no driving problems. Sometimes DTC P0400 or P1405 is set.
Cause: Faulty PPS signal (Valve Position Sensor).

Complaint: Poor idling, Engine stalls.
Cause: Sticky idle air control valve caused by oil vapor.
