    Default Intermittent check engine light and limp mode

    I have a 2002 Vectra c 2.0 dti

    About once a day while driving the little car and spanner light comes on and the car won't boost.

    If I pull in and turn the engine off and start it again the problem has disappeared

    The light seems to come on when I am at around 1500rpm and under load (up a hill etc)

    I have tried the thing with the brake and throttle to see what error code I have but the engine light doesn't flash.

    Is this a problem anyone else has had? I really want it fixed.

    The pedal trick doesn't work on all Vauxhalls. This means you might have to fork out and pay for a diagnostic check.
