Question about 2004 Toyota RAV4

2002 Astra SXi and engine management light on with lack of power

I have a 2002 Astra SXi, and my engine management light came on, and the power is severely reduced. This happened after I topped up with £5 of fuel.. I always tend to be on low fuel! Could it be a fuel filter blockage?

The car has also always had a problem with dropping power during long runs, I have to keep the revs higher, and not dip the clutch, but this will often pass and go back to normal (then it would typically re-occur later).

Any help is appreciated!

SOURCE: engine management light on, lack of power

I have the same problem, from cold it starts begrudgingly then trundles along in limp home mode, once the engine is warm again it seems to improve a little and by re-starting the engine it can re set the ECU. I have been to Toyota today and it is the SCV valve kit attached to the fuel pump. It could be one of many things though, and if you go to Toyota only they can diagnose the issue using their diagnostic which cost me £43.

SOURCE: Power loss in 2004 Corolla Verso D-4D T2 at speed

You might want to check the MAF sensor(Mass Air Flow) and clean it with MAF/MAP cleaner. I am also kind of puzzled with this problem as I have a 2004 Corolla also, I only had power loss when my MAF went bad.

Try changing out your distributer cap and rotor button. Let me know if that solves your problem.

My astra 1.8 sxi is missing an won't go past 3000 revs

what is an astra, what year?
Holden Astra in Australia and New Zealand ????
what year, its not a 1951 like your double post implies.
MISFIRE< is caused by 50 things.
why no scan it, does the scan tool show 1 cylinder misfiring or all ,
this fact is key to Diagnosis.

misfire has only a few reasons in physics.
(bad weak compression, or water incursion)
bad spark
bad injection. (or lack of air but at 3000 there is plenty)
just 3 things,
ever heard of SCAN tool or the CEL lamp.
too bad year is not stated. as in 2001 your country uses OBD2.
that can infact tell you which cylinder is misfiring.

Vauxhall astra 1.6 sxi the car seems to run ok then losses power and cuts out iit

not said year could be the cam and crank sensor. also you not said what gear box you have auto or manual. auto its down to having a ecu problem with it being in limp mode. manual it will be the same but more manageable with your onwn gear changes.
