Car keeps cutting out
2000 Vauxhall Corsa

I have got a corsa 1.2 and a orangey light keeps coming on and then the engine cuts out and it takes ages to start up again. I have took it to the garage and they put on a new pipe by the air filter but they said they couldnt find out why it keeps cutting out. Has anyone had this problem or know what it could be and what can be done to fix it?

very common problem is the egr valve fails to operate properly you need to go to the dealers and they will put a blank gasket on the egr and reprogramme the car then you sould have no problems with starting or cutting out as the car may even want a new egr valve aswell hope this helps
I had a similar problem on a Mitsubishi. No light came on though, it just kept cutting out when the car was not revving, i.e at traffic lights, roundabouts etc. Local garage could not figure it out. Ended up taking it back to Mitsubishi and they said it was a common problem with my GDI engine. The throttle body gets clogged up and needs cleaning. I just made sure I asked them to do this everytime I had a service and it ran fine. I would take thomkas_cars word for it, but maybe this is something worth bearing in mind.
