astra van 1.7 mk4 1999 Sign In

hi guys I would love some help as I am stuck.

my astra van 1.7 mk4 1999 goes into limp mode.

as I am driving the engine management light flicks on but goes off straight away :( so no diagnostic is picked up!!
I loose a slight amount of power and cant rev over a certain amount of revs as it is in limp mode.
As soon as I let off the accelerator the light will go off and I am back in normal driving mode and can increase speed again but only to find a few seconds later eml light is back on.

what could my problem be as I don't fancy replacing a load of parts to still have my problem.

Help is much appreciated!!

I have a long journey ahead on the weekend and need my van sorted asap :)

If it is is limp mode, there will be a code to retrieve.

it is only in limp mode as I am at speed.
tried to retrieve a code whilst eml on but comes up with no errors!! :(
the eml is off on general driving so this doesn't help.

what could my problem be?

just ordered a new maf sensor hopefully this is the problem.


does anyone have any ideas?

i am very tempted to buy new injectors...!!!!!
