    Engine management light. Means a sensor somewhere has a fault or has detected a fault.

    Someone here can hopefully tell you how to read what error 'code' or codes is being recorded by the onboard computer - tell us what they are and we may be able to help tell you what the problem may be.

    I had this because I had no oil :s Shame on me for not doing my checks. It limited my revs too. Topped it up with oil and it was all good again.

    first of all the light in question will be the emissions light

    on models after 2000 there is this light (emissions light) and the engine management light which as u rightly point out is the car/spanner

    On earlier models (98-00) there was only the one light - similar to the emissions light on later models but it had a lightning strike through it and this represented the engine management light.

    Anyway, on with the diagnosis

    P1113 refers to IAT Sensor Open/Short

    IAT = Intake Air Temperature

    On standard 1.6 models there is just an IAT on the air inlet trunking

    BUT

    Seeing as yours is the twinport Z16XEP model you have instead an AFM (Air Flow Meter) like the other engine sizes

    Unfortunately its not a common part so theres none listed on ebay at present but a quick call to a vauxhall specialist such as LMF or Autovaux and provide part numbe 25358054 will hopefully get u the correct part.

    You could try disconnecting the battery for half an hour to erase this fault code and see if it comes back again (remember ur stereo code if u have the original head unit)
