    Idling problem (revs dipping)

    Noticed a few people on here having problems with the revs dipping and engine cutting out. Mine is also doin this but it aint the engine management light that comes on.

    Dunno what the light means but its where the speedo is, a orange symbol that looks like a folder with a asterisk on it (star) and it is not down beside the engine management/handbrake lights it is actually in the same dial as the speedo.

    Anyone know why this comes on? sometimes when the revs dip it comes on but when the revs pick up it goes back off.

    Could it be the EGR, MAF sensor or IAC valve as i had a similar problem with the veccy and it was the IAC valve

    ***Forgot to add the car is an Astra 1.8 sxi W reg

    That's your coolant warning light if i'm not mistaken mate...

    EDIT:// Yup Cooland warning light, it should illuminate for a few second's when you first shitch the ignition on but should go out, if not check your coolant.
