make sure the car is not running on the battery only and the alternator is good and all of the vaccum lines are good and they are on and ask yourself when was the last time you had a tuneup spark plugs and wires if needed and drivebelt and a fuel filter and a air filter.

this could be a couple things yes EGR would be one the other is dirty fuel filters remove the EGR and vacuum out the location(do not use a spray cleaner), have a o-ring to replace when you pull it out, clean off the EGR, usually coked up. or if you prefer get a new one as sometimes they get locked up. and change the fuel filters.

Sounds like a faulty crank sensor. Can also be caused by a faulty cam sensor.

2000 300m, car was running fine the all a sudden the oil light came on and the engine shut down. car will turn over but not start. oil light is on on the dash.

Either the oil pressure switch has failed, or you really do have zero oil pressure. The lack of oil pressure can kill the fuel pump to prevent a fire in a wreck.
You may be able to jumper the fuel pump relay to see it it will start, then figure out the oil pressure issue.

Igot a vauxhall astra 1.8 sri igot a light cum on the dash its a car with a spanner threw it when on the engine idles bad

This is your mechanical fault light and the lack of power is the car going into limp mode to protect the engine and its components.
Have a garage run a diagnostic check to find the fault code and the fault.
Hope this helps

Losuing over drive lack of power hard starting must hold pedal to the floor

Does it start better after sitting overnight? Is it missing at all? Check engine light? Hard starting could be fuel pump, also lack of power could be lack of fuel. If it starts better after sitting overnight, could be block catalytic converter. That would also explain lack of power. If you have to hold gas pedal half way down trying to get speed would explain why it is not going into overdrive. Hope this gives you some direction.

When i accelerate going up hill the motor losses power (not electrical power) and the check engine light goes on

Your car most likely is suffering from ownerhatesme syndrome. This is most likely caused by:
A)lack of a much needed oil change.
B)lack of a much needed tune up.
C)lack of transmission fluid.
D)lack of a full systems check.
And finally
E)lack of love from the owner. For they are responsible for buying a ford when they know fords are known to break down and go bad over a short period of time.

And if you have done everything said above, the only problem could be a very dirty engine that struggles to get gas into the engine fast enough, or through corroded pipes. A full systems check is all you need to know the steps you need for your (F)ixed (O)r (R)epaired (D)aily to run smoothly again.

Hope it helps.

Deawoo nubiria 16 16v starts for 15 scound and stops

Lack of intake air? that's ridiculous. More likely the fuel pump circuit is losing run power, one circuit provides power in the crank mode the other in the run when the engine has started, likely cause of this issue is the ignition switch, not the key cylinder but the switch it operated.

Engine light comes on, lack of power,sounds like a filter, what do you think

If the engine light is coming on, it's a warning of a problem w/ your car, especially because u r experiencing a lack of power. U must check this out asap, as u may damage the vehicle by continuing to drive it. Have the codes read by a garage, dealer , or parts store. Most parts stores do it for free, and will explain what the codes mean. All it involves is having them plug a hand held computer (actually it's a scan tool) into a port under your dash, which connects w/ the car computer and reads any malfunction codes stored in the computer. countrycurt0
