When the engine light flashes its telling you the car is miss firing and from your description it was...even though you had coil packs replaced that is by far the most likley cause .if they were genuine parts you will have unlimited milage 2 year warranty.get the fault code read to find out what cylider the misfire was on and change that coil pack..

How many miles do I need to drive to complete the drive cycle


hi
generally the catalic converter get oily especially if the car is used
around the town the best thing to do from past experience is to drive the car down the motorway at 60mph. for good 3/4 hour at high revs
third gear if 4 gear motor you get the meaning this way you burn the oil
out because lots more heat is crated once this is done youshould pass the emission. happy driving

Have the computer scanned. If you have a service engine or emissions light on then a service code has been stored in the computer and only a scan will tell you what the problem is.

Recurring emission warning light


Hi there, did they run an emissions check? If so what was the outcome?

It could be your catalytic converter has broken down inside and/or blown a hole through it. Does the exhaust note seem louder and brash?

It is not dangerous for driving, but it can be annoying having that light blink at you. Disconnect the negative battery lead for 20 minutes. This should reset the ECU and if the light pops back up then there could be a fault with the CAT sensor or the above fault with the CAT.

I don't think it is a reocurring problem, moreso the ECU is thinking that the emissions are out of sync. Does the car consume gas quickly? Does the car feel sluggish?

Reply back and I hope this might help a little (vote if you think it's helpful)

Hi, you have a problem with the fuel tank evaporative loss system, e.g the fuel tank vent. You will need to take the car to a garage to have the fault diagnosed with a EOBD code reader.
Sorry not more helpfull Matt...

Emissions warning light stays illuminated while driving vehicle is a holden vectra 2001 and not oldsmobile as below. could not find a listing for holden.


The warning light has two states. A blinking light indicates a critical problem with gaseous emissions from the engine that is likely to cause permenant damage to the engine, exhaust sytem or catalytic converter. A blinking light must be remedied immediately, and the car should not be driven in this state, at the risk of causing serious and permenant damage to the engine, exhaust and/or catalytic converter. Repairing or replacing these parts can be extremely expensive. A reputable garage or a Vauxall/Opel garage should be able to diagnose and repair the problem.

A solid (unblinking) light indicates a non-critical fault in the emmisions exhaust system. Many faults are covered by this light including failures in emssions sensors, temperature sensors and a variety of other parts. This usually results in a higher than average amount of environmentally harmful pollutants being expelled from the car, loss of power and/or gradual damage to the engine, exhaust and catalytic converter. While the car can still be driven with a non-critical emmisions problem, it is highly recommended that the fault is diagnosed and repaired at a reputable garage or Vauxhall/Opel garage.
