I wouldn't use it. The chances are its a dodgy sensor or something but I wouldnt chance it.

You need to get access to the diagnostic plug which is beneath the handbrake handle. You would clearly notice if the car was in limp mode, but suspect you would need to try and rev beyond 3k to see.

I might have a go after work, just phoned up the garage and its going in Monday so will just use the old mans car over the weekend. Its still under warranty so shouldn't cost a penny!

Yes, i had a look in the handbook and it the engine management and Exhaust emission warning. It state in the handbook that it is now running on emergency running program and do not drive for lengthy periods of time

Oh no its not thats for diesel engines, its just the Exhaust emission warning light!

"Fault with the emission control system. The permissible emission limits may be exceeded. Consult your vauxhall dealership." From the astra handbook!
