Hello and good day/evening!

I have a really really nasty problem with my newly bought Vectra C GTS, model 2002-*. The problem occurs when the car stops and switches from Direct to Neutral automatically - the whole car gets "kicked" it jerks every time it does that. I mean EVERY time. What seems to be the problem here? I went here and there for advice and service but no one managed to help me so far, so I decided to try my luck here.

Big Thanks in advance!

This forum mainly deals with Opels imported into the U.S.A. Very few on this forum have any experience with Opels newer than 1975.

Gotta Love those ZF's

Almost all the time it's a due to the valve body.
The bores/spools get's oblong over time and will get seized in places..aka stuck and/or drag.

I see this all the time
First the T/C friction materiel fails
Then it's grinding metal-to metal
The V/B does not stand a chance with all the iron-men floating around :)
Not to mention the wobble wear that pulse-width modulation causes.
