Question about 2004 Opel Zafira 2.0
Hi I have a 320bhp 02 zafira gsi,I was driving along at about 70 mph when the engine turned itself off.so I tried to turn it back on no use. then was waiting for 2 hours for aa then found the problem, it was the sensor that plugs in the throttle body. then the car started perfect, but when I switched it on it started to rev itself between 1500-2000rpm and doesn't stop until I put my foot on the accelerator and when it take it off it starts revving itself. there are no lights on the dashboard and no codes when computer was plugged in, what could it be?
Sounds like you have a vacuum leak .check the vacuum hose that goes onto the throttle body

When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that powertrain control module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.

I woud suspect if it is all 4 it is an open circuit in the wireing. When faulting & won't go follow the injector wireing back from the injectors & slightly bend the wireing harness while someone is cranking the vehicle. Pay particular attention to where the harness runs near the exhaust (if it does) & check for any melted parts of the loom or conecting plugs. Also disconnect the loom at the 1st place along the loom & look at the connector for anything unusual.

The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.
