    Engine Light Flashing?

    Was driving the other day and my oil light come on. Plenty of oil in there, so took it to my mates mechanic and turned out to be a censor gone or something. That got fixed.

    Was driving about 15 mins ago and my engine light came on. Car started to shake, even when in neutral. Everytime I went to put my foot down a bit... it started to flash.

    I know it could be a million things but does anyone know what it could be before I go to the garage tomorrow or has anyone had any similar problems?

    Never had a problem at all with the car and now since the oil leak, two problems in two weeks.

    Thank you,

    Ash

    99.9% EGR valve mate.

    Get it replaced then round to Vauxhall to haev your ECu updated with the latest firmware. This has the software rewrite which disables the EGR valve.

    EGR will cost you about £100 and the update will cost you around £50 but it means you'll never have to replace the EGR again.
    Its a jam thing
