Hi everyone! I just recently got a 2005 1.4 SXI Astra. I was driving home today and I was accelerating and when the RPM hit around 6k I got a flashing EML light and the car was very sluggish. It was in limp home mode. Got home, plugged in the opcom and i had a random misfire code and a cylinder 1 misfire code. Any idea what would cause this?

Perfect, that's exactly what i thought it might be. Just wanted to double check with more knowledgeable people! Could anything else be causing it or is it pretty much going to be one of those two?

Also just to say, it didn't happen again after that. Once i turned the engine off it went out of limp home mode and i could drive it normally.
