    Engine Electric Fault

    Hi there guy's

    Can anyone help me, i have an Astra Sxi 02 reg only done 43000 on th clock. I was driving yesterday and suddenly the engine electric light came one and slowed me down, the more i press the car the slower it gets........ it will not pick up speed. the light looks like an amber car with a spanner in the middle.

    that (i think) means its in limp mode, dont drive it anywhere except to a garage so they can fix it. somethings up witht he engine i think mate. its goes into this mode to protect it from any further damage to the engine and kina runs on just the battery.

    this morning i started i stared the car as normal and the sign has gone......... very strange. drove 50 miles with halftank and its still showing half tank. I think i may have to take it in to the dealers for this, after the sign went the engine made some tapping sounds. but many thanks for the reply.

    usally caused by missfire,, be worth changing plugs and checking leads etc or coil pack witch ever your car has.

    had it serviced by dealers 2 weeks ago, went to the local garage today and had a diagnostic test. Test result showed Engine control module code p0670. for sum reason it drinks to much engine oil. but its running ok now.......... never had this issue with any car before.
