Please help!! Engine management light on an Astra Sport
This is my first on this board - so please be gentle!! Big Col said to try posting on here (I posted this question on Scoobynet)
Basically, my misses drives a 1.8 Astra Sport, on an M plate. It has been running fine (done 43Kmiles) when suddenly the engine management light came on and it began running like a dog.
We changed the IDLE CONTROL VALVE, and this sorted out the running prob lems, for about a month. Then the light came on agan and the car ran rough.
AA diagnosed a faulty camshaft sensor and lambda sensor. BOTH HAVE BEEN REPLACED (turned out both were odd types, and were bloody expensive)
The light is still coming on. It comes on when engine has been runnnig, and is up to temp. Now it is starting to lurch under power.
CAN ANYONE HELP?? Could it be the exhaust gas recirc valve? And what is an exhaust gas recirc valve!!!
Cheers in advance everyone
