I run a w reg astra 1.4 16v,i have just had the head gasket done in may and the cambelt done at the same time.My prob is the car is driven at normal city speed most of the time 40-50mph.Last week i went on the motorway and as soon as i got to 60 mph the light came on for 8-10 secs and went out.Me thinking it was fine raised the speed to 70,and the light did the same,on the flat at 60 & 70it seem ok,until i came to a hill when it came on again and went out.I have been told it is cam sensor but i dont know,it does'nt seem to lose any power though.So if any of you guys could help,it would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance :think

as you have probably guessed, that engine management light likes to come on in vauxhall cars, happened to my corsa and it was the cam sensor - my car did not seem to be losing power either. Cost me about £60 just to get told what was wrong after they link it up to their machine tech2!
