A phone call wouldn't go wrong . If not covered by recall and wiring examined and o.k , check / clean MAF sensor and spark plugs also

Thanks called Vauxhall the say the recall is for a different size engine. The maf sensor was replaced also just had to do timing chain even though I have only done 50000 miles. Vauxhall dealer says to check connection to ignition module as seem a common fault anyone else know of this. Honest since I have had this Meriva I have spent so much money on it and has been serviced annually even a new ECU. Worst car ever.
