Customer Question
Engine management warning light...

Engine management warning light has just come on (holden colarado 2008 4x4 diesel)> But I need to drive 200km tomorrow., Is this drive possible or will it damage the care?

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

Sorry - the warning light on the dash board. The icon looks like an engine and I believe it is the engine management warning light (sorry can't find a service manual to confirm the icon's correct name?)

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model of your car?

Holden Colarado 2010 dual cab 4x4 diesel (3 litre)

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Cab yourself? What have you tried so far?

No not fixing it myslef.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Loss of power just on one occasion as I was driving this morning. Stopped car - everything was OK (but I also don;t know what to look for). Started engine and away we went
