    Red face Emission light

    Well its come on, i have no idea why, no hole in the exhaust, car puls away fine still had it up to 90 on mway to see if it wud start to flash to see if the cat converter is being damaged nope, gna run a few tanks of fuel through it and some line cleaner some carb cleaner see if that works. if not ill have the emissions tested again. im fairly sure its the sensor tho playing up but lets wait and see anyone else had any problems like this

    if you dont have a clue, a trip to vx might be in order just to find out if it is a sensor?

    i had a similar problem with my 2.2, the temp sensor on the inlet duct had a cable break off. got a replacement of a scrap yard astra and disconnected the neutral from the battery for 10 mins and replaced and the light never came back.
    car was running still pretty sweet with the light on but fixed it toot sweet so maybe could have got worse.
    hope that helps

    i have had the same problem with my 1.8 sri, i used to come on and go off all the time almost everything when it had been left for a day or so, i changed the lambar sensor near to the manifold and that sorted mine out! GOOD LUCK!

    EGR valve.

    Sometimes mine comes on and the car doesn't go into limp mode and drives perfect. Other times it goes into limp mode (not too much difference TBH) and I can't make it past 80 and it struggles from 60 onwards.

    Recommend go to a back street garage who own a OBDII tool to read the codes. Then find out what it is. odds on EGR valve. You can try and clean it but tbh I'd just replace it. Or you could go to Vauxhall and get them to update the ECU as there is a software work around for a faulty EGR valve that the new ECu update will solve. This means you should never see the EML on due to the EGR valve.
