    Default Astra VXR 2008 cutting out??

    My astra randomly cuts out when stopping st traffic lights junctions etc, itís not all the time but happens possibly 1/30 times. The EML has appeared now and again with O2 Bank 1 Sensor Malfunction so I have a feeling itís to do with this. Anyone had the same issue and could shed any light? Or would the O2 Sensor not be related in anyway? The only faults on the pedal test and OBD reader is the o2 Sensor

    A bust maf causes cutouts and could easily be this. But if it is saying fault with the sensor then I'd be tempted to try a new bank 1 sensor. Only 40 odd quid.

    That’s the thing it’s not logging any other codes, worth cleaning the MAF out with contact cleaner then?

    Do the sensors have to be genuine part? Like spark plugs? Seen them on fleabay with 2yr warranty for 20 odd quid!
