    Lightbulb engine light 2.2 vectra 2003

    morning
    my engine light came on my 2.2 petrol vec 2003
    the one on the right hand side of dashboard (not the spanner light)
    what could this indicate ,i have the equipment to check when i get home but im at work at the moment.
    there is no lack of power ,i just wondered if it was an emisions light like my old 2.6

    i will get the code later but any ideas would be a help
    cheers

    How many miles are on the engine? When was the timing chain last changed?

    If the chain is stretching (could be the old style oil nozzle which causes poor lubrication issues), this can cause an increase in emissions as it knocks your timing out slightly. This could in turn switch on the light you're seeing.

    Yes it is. The EML light normally just relates to things on the air intake, spark and exhaust side of things. It may just be something like a dodgy Lambda sensor or MAF.

    On my 2.2 direct my eml came on when I had a sticky thermostat. Does your temp gauge read correctly. Prob not this but worth a look.
