Hi dude, what you need to do is get or borrow a multimeter and check the charge firstly of your battery just battery, then start your car, you should have roughly 12volts battery, then 14volts when car is running, give your battery a voltage drop test also to see if it holds charge. What type of car is it as this is important petrol or diesel.

Just the change dipstick and the oil in the car and also check if there is any debris in the car as the broken dipstick which may cause damaged to the engine ,You found the problem it was the oil burn which is causing the loss of power ,and also clean the alternator ..


Good luck....

SOURCE: car will not start-battery is fine

Try this Put your key in turn it on dont start wait 10 mins remove key wait 10 seconds repeat this a total of 3 times. Your theft light should go out. As long as the light is on your fuel system is disabled. If that dont work try a different key do the same thing. If that dont work a dealer needs to probably replace and reprogram your ignition switch and keys

Spanner showing on dash when engine running vauxhall vectra c


VECTRA CAR WITH SPANNER WARNING LIGHT This Vauxhall Vectra car with spanner warning light illuminates or flashes yellow. Light will illuminate for around 3 seconds when the ignition is switched on. If the fault light illuminates whilst the engine is running, this signifies a fault within the engine or gearbox electronics system. The system will switch to emergency mode where fuel consumption may increase and the vehicles drivability reduced. A Vauxhall workshop must be consulted. If the light flashes whilst the engine is running, this signifies a fault within the electronic immobiliser system and the engine will not be able to be restarted.
