    URGENT need a bit of info

    My sister has broken down, she has a 1.8 16v astra.

    When she turns the key it turns over revs, the engine managment light comes on and the revs slowly die of and the engine cuts out. She has done a longish journey done some shopping and has come back to it after an hour or so.

    Any ideas??

    Cheers

    I had the same on my old mk3 - left if for a while and it started spot on.

    On reading the fault codes at home, it reported that the crank sensor was fubar. After replacing the sensor, it was sweet as.....

    I've just got my car back after 10 days of it being with Vxl.

    I broke down twice last week because my engine management light came on and the car revved permanently at 1.5k and went into limp mode.

    I've had to have a new ECU
