Just on the M4 on my way to work when a huge plume of blue smoke comes out of the back, engine management light come on and all power goes.
Managed to coast to the hard shoulder to wait for the RAC. He plugs in the computer - whole load of faults ping up which he says wouldn't relate to the issue. Waiting for flatbed now to take us to Vauxhall's.
Now for the cold wait to get to Vx, then no doubt a longer wait to get whatever bad news is in store for me...
Bit of an update and follow up for those of you that are interested...
Car was in with main dealer for a few days, they initially couldn't get it started normally so 'forced' it to start (I didn't want to ask about their methods!) - apparently black smoke flew out for a minute or two then everything was running as normal!
I'm really not sure what to think of this, it's not normal for a problem to resolve itself and not give any more hassle! Have I got lucky or is this signs of bigger problems to come in the future?!
On the plus side, my last experience with the dealer wasn't too great (which I reminded the service manager of when I dropped off the car) and there was no charge when I picked the car up after a few days.
