    Have had similar problems with Vauxhalls. After a diagnostic check which was inconclusive, took it to my local mechanic who removed the EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) valve and found it totally jammed with carbon.Valve was replaced. He aslo told me that the main cause was using supermarket fuel as it does not contain any additives. Switched to BP which is a bit more expensive but no more problems.
