I have exactly the same problem on a 2003 1.8 petrol Ecotec. I've changed the coilpack and cleaned the connector. Some difference but the problem was still there. I haven't solved the problem but using hotter spark plugs (bosch Super 4) seems to mitigate the problem to the point where the car is serviceable again. If anybody has an answer to this one i would like to know about it. Thank.
