First time i just came offa roundabout and it just stopped pullin looked at dash and the yellow engine light was on so i pulled over, turned it off and then tried startin it took a while to tick over but eventually did, when it cut out engine was stuill going just not pulling...

then worst time ever just took a bravo, at 60... hit a roundabout so slowed down to about 20, bravo was alongside me kicked it into second about to take a left and it did the same again... bravo killed me off and went was well gutted cus wanted to kill him... so i pulled over went through same procedure... actually i drove for about 10m in 3rd it just would pull over 30 and was strugglin...

yep its the engine management light (ECU) cud be one thing or many things u can read the fault codes on the ecu by usin a paperclip in the diagnostic plug located in ur fuse box, see here http://www.knighta.f9.co.uk/info/fault_codes/fault_codes.htm

ive never done it myself but ive heard its the same as wot vaux do when they plug it in but not as technical! u can stil find out wot codes its throwin up tho

Bend a metal coat hanger and shove it in the two prongs on the front of the ECU, whatever the number the lights flash up, it will display your fault. Sounds to me like fuel starvation.
