Any mechanics able to help with a question? Since our service, our car seems to jerk when in 2nd gear doing 20MPH It also does it in higher gears, again, didn't before. What could this be?

Do have a manual gearbox in your Rolls-Royce? That's a very expensive options.

Check air filter, fuel filter, spark plugs (assuming its petrol not Diesel)etc - replace if required

also moisture inside the distributor cap can be a problem in autumn/ winter, check, ensure its moisture free & a squirt of wd40

View attachment 2387Astra, just seen a light come up, will take to garage.
Engine management, probably mechanic didn't reset when carrying out the diagnosis. Orange light at the top is indicating ABS off. I believe that the ECU and ABS are linked on the Astra. Might be a sensor, probably needs a reset post service. Should be done at no cost.
