OK need your help and advice
Corsa was going fine on the way to work this morning. As I slowed and turned into a junction the engine lost power for a split second. Carries on up the hill and then turns into work car park, same momentary loss of power. Car drives round carpark OK then as I pull up to space it stalls. Tries to start it. No joy.
Leaves it all day comes out at night corsa does start but not easily. Engine management light comes on. Drive home slowly, engine in 'get you home mode'. Engine does sound OK no odd noises.
By now everywhere is shut. I disconnected the battery for over 1 hour to clear the codes but the fault is exactly the same. Have I no choice but to go to Mr Vauxhall and pay him to plug it up to Tech2? Is there any other way of reading the fault code?
I'm dreading the timing belt has jumped a tooth or something similar, as these engines are famous for it.
Any ideas much appreciated, especially ones that don't cost money
