If I stop at the lights or park up, after 20 secs or so the engine cuts out. The car is an R reg Vectra 2L 16valve auto.

Any ideas or advice is much appreciated.

if u mean it cuts out when its warm (which u hear of alot) it's the inlet manifold gunked up and the breather pipes gunked, also the idle control valve, they all need a real good clean out and make sure you clear the tiny breather openings on the air inlet, there are hundreds of listings on here all the same about this very fault hope this helps

I had this problem with mine and the breather pipe was so gunked up that even a high pressure air line could not clear it - now it's done the car runs like a dream :Cool2: (I also cleaned the ICV too)

Hi had this prob with my S reg vectra 2L 16V, tried cleaning as above but made it worse, (worth a try first tho), just put in new idle valve and running great now.
