THe vibrating is caused by worn out bushes if you look under the vehicle on the exhaust system you should be able to see them. It may also be wrong plugs or plugs about to die.Wrong plugs can cause your car to hiss, under-perform jerk and above all smoke and misfire. For fuel injection I recommend you to use the 2-pin Resistor plugs

The noise yu hear is that of a crank sensor. It usually does that if you change timing belt and you missed the settings a little. It is a nuisance you can live with though but if you disconnect the sensor the car won't start at all. You just need to reset it.

If I were you I would keep the original Astra configuration. But you can get original parts from scrapyards.

Hope this helps

By the way. Loss of power is also plugs-related. It is also your CLUTCH Is about to get finished so go up a hill and try good old hill start. If the car judders you need to replace your clutch kit
