If it,s overheating as you drive along,could be the thermostat sticking shut,or poor flow through the rad,(it's 10 years old so could be blocking). If it's just when in slow moving traffic,could be the electric fan not coming on--faulty thermo switch,wire off,motor u/s.Is the coolant level dropping?If so,and no leak apparent,you may have head gasket failure or just the pressure cap blowing off.Is auto box slipping,or not engaging high gear,brake dragging?Something in this list should help.

There is a pipe on the right hand side of your engine that's come off somewhere the car is running like if it is missfireing its a vauxhall 1800 you cant see where it should be fitted?

have a look under the air filter...sounds like a breather pipe There are some tubes that don't seem to be going anywhere. These are breathers. But be warned.... I have a 1600 vectra. This sudenly started running with a miss fire. I had blown the inlet valve on cylinder three. if by removeing the sparkies one at a time whilst the engine is running the same you will find a problem with the which ever cylinder does not change the way the engine runs. Go to a vauxhall dealership with service. Speak to a mechanic during lunch hour. You may well find that if you bung them a few quid for a pint they will tell you whats wrong and how to cure.
