    Engine stalling

    Hai my astra mk3 1.6 16LZ2 engine stalls while running and when it stalls all warning lights comes on except the orange EML light and the car doesnot start,suddenly when the eml light comes on the car starts and runs finely. What could be the problem,please advise as it is very frustrating to take the car in traffic.

    I'll post here instead of the PM you sent me

    When my MK3 wouldn;t start and I didn't get the EML it was the fuel pump relay that was at fault, this was quite a common problem back then

    as autosparks said as i had the same problem. no eml, no fuel and no spark as the fuel pump relay was buggered. to get the car started i used to kick the kick pannel to the right of the accelerator pedal whilst turning the car over as thats where its located (well was on my mk3 gsi) and would start. there not to much money so give it a try. lee
