Thought I'd join her and post to help other people who have come across a similar problem.
This morning I drove to the petrol, filled up and the car would not start.
Turning the key, electrics seemed to be working, however the starter motor was not turning off/kicking in.
I did the pedal...
My Astra F runs in "limp home mode" intermittently. The EML light is not on, and the accelerator pedal and throttle body have been replaced. After each were replaced it worked ok for a short while, but then went back into "limp home mode". What else might be causing this?
Rough running. Slight loss of power. Idling at 800 rather than 1000 (no aircon etc).
I searched online but can't find 013007 in any list. Engine is an Z 16 XEP. 2006 reg.
Serviced independantly in August.
Just how far can I drive with this ? ;)
:cool: I have a 2008 Astra Mk5 3(H) 3dr 1.6 Sxi
I got the fault code ECN 218217 when I did the pedal test. I took it to a mechanic his diagnostics gave the same fault code which is the "engine coolant sensor" so he replaced it and cleared the fault light.
Driving to work the following day...
