    Default 2.2 petrol - loss of power when cold

    hi all, best get straight into whats happened. went to notts yesterday morning, a 30 mile trip for me and the car was great. was parked for approx half hour. when i started the 30 mile return journey home the engine management light came on and remained on. that afternoon i made a couple off short runs, the light was on for the first and off for the second. its stayed off since. today i also made 4 or 5 short runs. on the 4th run i drove downhill to the bottom of my road which is about 500m. started and drove ok until i pulled out of my road. total loss of power. would not rev until i put the clutch in. after that it ran fine, even after being parked for an hour. on the 5th run, same thing. go to pull out at the bottom of my road and there was total loss of power again. only this time it didn't help when i put the clutch in. and also it seemed to last for about 10 seconds. as soon as the power came back it was fine. HELP!!! please advise. thanks gokartin.

    eml has come back on so its gone onto the emergency programme. which is all good cause its now running fine. will get it plugged into diagnostics to find out what the problem is. then go from there. hopefully it wont be to expensive.
