    Astra G Engine Management Light - Help? :@

    Hi everyone, fairly new to the astra fold, only had mine since 15th Jan!
    (1.8 astra sport, 1998 mk4)
    (103,000 on the clock and a new cambelt at 99,00)

    Recently noticed the engine management light occassionally flickering on with a slight lack of power.

    Today coming out of the petrol station the engine management light came on and wont go off. The power seems to have dropped dramatically, literally 60% of the power has gone, accelerating is impossible and the engine suddenly sounds like a dirty diesel with a slight knocking noise.

    Ive checked the oil, air filter (changed a few weeks back), the maf sensor and the radiator. Everything seems fine.

    Any idea's what to check next?

    Thanks in advance!

    then once you realise nothing happens youll need to do the paperclip test as pedal test is for OBDII models ie from 2000 onwards

    heres the details for self reading the ECU on pre 2000 models
