2003 Opel Astra 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 45000 miles
The engine management light has been coming on frequently in the last few days (after having been on a Ferry - don ´t know if this is relevant).
It tends to come on after about 5 minutes of driving but if I turn engine off and on again, it goes.
I found an article on the internet explaining how to get the error code by putting foot on brake and gas pedals, turning ignition on and watching the sequence in which the light flashes (4 sequences with a pause in between each sequence, each sequence representing a single digit number).
On trying this, the sequence gave me the following number 1113. Maybe this is nonsense and I shouldn ´t believe everything I see on te internet.
Anyway there is also a slight whistling sound that SEEMS to be coming from under the car when the engine is running. There is also a slight low level mechanical whirring with the occasional quiet ´clunk click ´ noise coming from the glovebox area.
