Engine management light...

The other day, for the second time with in a month or 2, my engine management light came on with the message to check engine. What also happens at the same time is a loss of power. I was on the Ellon Road coming in from Balmedie in 3rd gear with my foot hard to the floor and struggled to get up to and past 40mph.

Now, the solution both times has been 1/2 litre of oil added and the power comes straight back and the light goes off with in a short time.

What could be causing this?

You'll get a better response if you post this up in the 159 tech lounge Kev. If it's a common issue someone will have the answer.
