Hi I have 2.2 vectra with major problem. Engine light came on and went into limp mode, rac said plug and fuel problem. Have so far had new plugs, new coil pack , new mass air flow sensor, new injector, fuel pump repaired, fuel sensor. All done in a garage 1k later and still not solved. It starts ok but when you rev it goes back into limp mode again. Desperate now any advice would be gratefully received. Thanks in advance
