With strong confirmation, there is an electrical error reading code. Take your car for diagnosis. There you will get a code that tells the exact thing that is to be corrected. Mind you it does not mean there is a serious problem. It could be that something fitted is not well fitted.

Astra goes limp mode once service lifght comes on

this is normal practice to protect the engine /transmission from costly repairs. Run the fault codes to find which sensor is activated. Check all fluid levels (coolant at the radiator cap). Fix the fault and use a scanner to reset the light.

While the engine quit and afer sittin for a short time started and went about 1 mile and engin died again. It wasn't overheating

without further diagnosis and proper testing equipment it sounds like you have a bad ignition coil or possibly a bad fuel pump. remove the fuel filler cap when this happens and listen for the fuel pump to come on when you turn the key to the run position. the fuel pump should run for 3-5 seconds. if it does the ignition coil is probably bad as the windings inside the coil can seperate when hot and reconnect when they cool again. good luck

Cougar service engine light comes on for the first two miles

Hold down the "trip" and "trip reset" buttons at the same time when the service engine light comes on. The service engine light comes on between 5000 and 8000 miles as an oil change reminder, however you have to reset it manually.
