    Astra Coupe Turbo - No Power

    I have a coupe turbo, X reg with 90k on the clock. For the last 20k or so the power has been dying off and it now drives like a 1.6 - mate of mine has an Alfa 147 1.6 and pretty much keeps up with me!

    This car's now on it's 3rd gearbox!!! as off 2 weeks ago and also had new CAT's fitted at the same time as the Emmission warning light was on. The power sort of came back for a while after the work was done but now the warning lights back on and power is non existant.

    Please help...I want my power back!

    i don't know but i would assume that the warning light is linked to the engine management to cut the power for safety reasons.

    This might sound a bit stupid, but is your turbo working at all? You should get that major kick from about 2K revs. Can you rev it through the gears at all? If it drives OK through the rev range (up to 5000K or more) then its not the 'get me home' ECU self protection thing, its probably your turbo gone keput
