My Opel Vectra is very sluggish when in first and second gear; could it be timing belt? No engine fault light shows up.

That doesn't sound related to a timing belt problem. A timing belt can either break altogether (potentially causing very expensive engine damage), in which case the engine would not run at all, or it could slip causing the engine to, at best, run poorly all of the time.
Best bet is to bring your automobile to a good mechanic for a look but it could be as simple as a dirty air filter or bad fuel, neither of which would automatically cause a warning light to come on.
