    Default Insp light and Low Power Issue

    My wife has had a the car appear to loose power when cornering. This has been on a long sweeping bend onto a dual carriage way. Fuel tank is on 65 mile range and showing mid-way between red and a quarter. Not driving particularly fast as on the school run. In third gear at approx. 40mph. The engine looses power and the 'INSP' comes up on dash. She has to stop on slip road as car won't accelerate. Turn engine off then off and all ok.......all I can think is that low fuel is causing this?? Any thoughts ideas.....anyone??

    The "InSP" message shoud only briefly appear in the odometer display when you first turn the key, and only when due a service.

    Unless you mean the car/spanner light, or are we not talking about a Vauxhall?

    No mention of what car or engine details.

    Sorry, yes my 1.9 CDTi 150(185). She didn't mention spanner light/engine light....just the fact it was like limp mode and INSP flashed up.
