It has been recently reported (Daily Mail 17th January) that certain Vauxhall diesel engined cars have suffered "Power Loss" with the EMS switching to "Get You Home Mode". From what I can recall this is effecting Vectra's & Sigma's manufactured / registered in the late 1990's
I recently experienced a similar problem with a 2006 registered Astra 1.4litre diesel powered Estate
Driving to Dover the engine suddenly lost all power - quite scary whilst in the outside lane of the M23 - but continued to run.
A breakdown engineer was called who suggested it was something to do with the EDG Valve. Incidentally the engineers computer could not find the problem although the warning light on the dashboard display remained "on".
The problem corrected itself and the car ran smothly for the rest of a 2000 mile trip through France.
There is obviously a "safety" question here. What would have happened if I'd been in heavy traffic ???
Has anybody experienced silmilar problems
