I am the owner of an Opel Astra G Caravan (This is the European name, don't know how it is in USA) from year 2007. It has an 1.4 Twinport engine Z14XEP and a manual gear.
A few days ago I noticed that my car is going crazy at high rpms (2500+) and the yellow Check Engine sign appeared on dashboard, but engine doesn't stall, but it is working in a strange way after this with big vibrations. (If I am stopping the engine and starting again the problem is dissapearing)
So I decided to arrive home and have a look into Throttle Body, bought a carb. cleaner, removed it from engine and cleaned it. After putting it back I decided to give it a try, and voila, the same problem was there. And now sometimes on my way to work the engine does the same thing, and if I am looking under the pipe that comes from air filter to the body the Throttle butterfly is blocked in full open position.
So is there a way to repair the sensor? because I don't really want to change the body, because it costs me in my country around 350 Euro for a new one
