Hello from South Africa!!

I recently bought a Zafira Z22YH... It's a non-runner for the moment , but its the only one I could afford. My aim is to attempt DIY as much as possible until I run out of skills and online resources to guide me.
Sadly, Zafira is not a popular car in SA, and the Z22YH variant is even less common.
But I'm hoping that with YouTube / forums , etc I can find enough info to get the car on the road.
I'm no mechanic, and not really a petrolhead, but I'm also not a complete novice when it comes to DIY. I am definitely ready to learn, and definitely willing to give things a try.
I had registered also on a vectra-c forum last week, and got some useful tips there already (like the idea that I need to get Op Com), but thought it might also be beneficial to register here since i find a lot of my Google searches lead to link on this forum, and that you guys have a lot of active owners with Z22YH engines.

So hello, and I hope I can learn a lot here and, as I learn more about my car, I hope I can make positive contributions.

EDIT: I will post a thread on the "Projects" section, with all the details of where the Zafira stands right now, and then update as I go.

Hello and welcome to the site

Non runner could be timing chain related ?

Thanks guys.
The car does start and idle, but misfires. And it's in limp mode. Best I can gather so far from the symptoms and reading this and other forums (and a generic OBD2 scanner with Torque Pro) is that it's the Fuel Pressure Regulator.
I have the Continental HPFP, so I'm lucky there.

I have started the project thread as promised.

Will keep it updated with whatever I find.
At the moment I'm waiting for my Chinese knockoff OP-COM device to arrive so I can disconnect the FPR and measure the voltage... I've seen quite a few posts regarding how to diagnose
Budget is super tight so I can't afford to get it wrong.

Again, thanks for the kind welcome :)

Hi and welcome to the site. :)

Should be a good runner once you resolve this problem!
