Daily drive is a nice red (well pink) Astra Club (wind up windows and air con - wtf?) with the 1.6 8v engine.
left car for the day, came back later on in the evening and when i started the car the emission light on dash came on and the car was running on 3 cylinders (sounded like an old corsa with no oil...)
had a little mess around, plugs were all in, leads OK, but one of them wasn't getting a spark. traced back to the distributor/coil (now this is where I am confused....)
what kind of ignition system do they use and i presume once I replace the coil everything will be OK again (plugs/leads were done 2k miles ago at 50k miles)
Any help would be appreciated.
As an aside, are these drive by wire and fuelling is ECU controlled?
