Astras are renowned for problems with the throttle body which gunges up after a while. The problem often can be resolved by giving it a thorough cleaning. Other common causes of this problem include the EGR valve and idle control valve.

Have 1999 Chev Malibu 2.4L. On startup at times runs rough, strong smell of fuel, code P0300, check engine light flashes, all other systems test fine. Restarting after about 30 min, she runs smooth.

When I see that code and those symptoms I typically start by looking at the timing belt. When the timing belt gets stretched it will cause this code to come up. The other cause could be a bad Crank of Cam position sensor but we need to eliminate the timing belt as the problem first. To check if the timing belt is the problem do a compression check on the motor to see if you have 0 compression on any cylinders. Once you have done that let me know the results and we will proceed to the next series of checks.
