Had this problem with mine (51reg 1.6petrol)

Turned out to be nothing but low oil.

Uses more oil than any car I've ever owned but no spots or smoke just uses it.
When oil gets really low, orange car light comes on and management system cuts power. No oil light! apparently this only comes on once you've completely screwed your engine, nice one Vauxhall.
