    Default spanner & engine

    vectra c 2003 2.0 DTI 65k

    had the spanner & engine light come on a few months ago when i was driving on a motorway for the first time in ages, went off again and been fine until today.

    not been on motorway since last time it happened but after about 20 miles the light came on, stopped switched off and it was out again, off i went but after a few more miles it came on again and i could feel the car was in limp mode noticed smoke from exhaust when it was in limp mode, so stopped right away switched off and on again light off and back to full power

    continued my journey and made a mental note of when it came on, seems to be when i have been sitting at speeds in excess of 60+ for a period of time, on the way home it only happened once yet on my way out this morning it happened 6 or 7 times, weather was same both ways

    Get the fault code(s) read out. Takes away all the guesswork of what could be causing the problem.
