SOURCE: 2003 L200 2.2 ecotec w/ crack in head

the crack is possibly in a oil pressure gally and that would by why there is pressure behind it. there is no fix and this engine is not notorious for this problem. if the engine has low miles i would just replace the cyl head.

thats sounds like the most likely culprit, collapsed cat. or collapsed muffler.. not cheap to replace. but has to be done.

SOURCE: problem with opel zafira. driving along car

The garage you've taken it to must be incompetent if they knew of your fault and failed to locate it.

Modern engines are effectively computer controlled robots, so the fault you describe may have a number of causes. But from experience the most likely cause is either a loose wiring connector, a chafed or fractured wire or a failing ignition coil pack. Of those, the coil pack is most suspect, especially if the fault tends to appear only once the engine has warmed up. If you find that the car starting is difficult on a hot engine but fine when the engine is stone cold then it further suggests a failed coil pack.

Testing the coil pack properly means it must be tested under full load and that needs special equipment. In practice, the easiest test is to substitute a suspect coil pack with a known good one.

Please note that I stress the phrase "most likely". My suggestion cannot be a guaranteed solution as I have no access to your vehicle and cannot perform any diagnostic tests.

2004 opel zafira 1.8 overheating no leaks visible but boiling in filler bottle ?

The boiling in the bottle could be combustion gas from a failed cylinder head gasket.

If there is residual pressure in the bottle when the engine is cold it is virtually guaranteed to need a head gasket.

05 saturn ion, ecotec, left/driver side radiator hose stays cold, doesn't over heat, and heater works great , new water pump and thermostat ,and head.

in cold weather with the heater on the engine will not get hot as the cab heater will keep the engine cool enough ,turn heater off and run engine at 2000rpm untill thermostat opens and fan comes on a bit later ,check it out before you use the car .Any problems answer this post so it comes back to me via E mail.this car is the same as a opel astra in europe .

Engine not starting

check there is no air in the fuel line. there is a bleed valve on the injector line. has a plastic cap on it. push it in till the air is out. and only fuel comes out. you will need to prime it a few times so air out the turn on ignition and repeat doing this till just fuel comes out then mop up the fuel that is on the engine dont start engine till its off..

Where is the mass airflow sensor on opel zafira 2.2

On the 2.2 zafira, z22se engine. There is no MAF sensor. Which is why you can not find it.
Instead it uses a combination of the IAT (Intake Air Temp) and the MAP (Manifold Air Pressure) sensors.The IAT is the small plastic sensor on the side of the intake duct.The MAP sensor is just after the throttle body. You need to take the whole throttle body off to get at it.
