    mk4 astra 2002 sxi 1.6 16v keeps stalling

    hi there my girls astra keeps stalling when coming up to a junction and you clutch. the revs drop and she cuts out, also some times when driving she splutters.

    has any one had any experience with problems like this. ?

    any advice appreciated on what i could check

    Is the speedo working ? If it is then likely suspects are:

    Idle control valve
    Vacuum leak
    Blocked breather hoses / dirty throttle body
    Coolant temp sensor
    EGR valve

    People have had luck cleaning them, others have struggled for months thinking their newly cleaned idle valve (and EGR valve) aren't the problem any more but have found they've got stuck again.

    Personally I'd bung in a new coolant temp sensor for a tenner first to rule that out. My MK3 1.6 16V Astra auto used to cut out at junctions (and roundabouts, and when you took your foot off the throttle) for the previous owner and was cured by the sensor.

    Re: mk4 astra 2002 sxi 1.6 16v keeps stalling

    the ecotec 2 litre 16v x20xev had a similar problem with cutting out at junctions ect it was to do with the crank case breather pipe going to the the throttle boddie so i just removed them and use a oil catch tank worth a try as it wont cost anything to try and i may well be the same thing good luck mate

    Might be a bit of a stab in the dark but have you checked all the engine earths ? On the old MK3 1.6 16v engines, there were mentions of earth problems near the throttle body/egr area but I don't know about the 2002 engines.

    That seems a lot of fault codes - looks more like a wiring problem than a sensor problem.
