What caused my 2013 Holden Captiva to lose power and stop?

Asked by Tracey

My Holden Captiva 2013 has always worked perfectly fine for many years, but a few days ago, after driving for less than a minute going up a slight hill, my car became gutless and stopped. I restarted and drove home. Later that day I drove about four minutes down the road and same thing happened and it won't start at all now. Even the mechanic is stumped.

The only smart thing to do here is to have the car scanned at a workshop with the necessary computer gear and see what the fault codes suggest. You could try for years to second-guess what has caused this problem, and still not come up with the correct answer. The possible causes number in the hundreds, but a scan will hopefully take the guesswork out of a diagnosis.
