Does the car get driven everyday?

Dual fuel or petrol only?

AU Auto Mechanic: Gary, Australia Car Mechanic replied 2 months ago

Ok, all good info.

So we need to check for spark and fuel pressure.

Are you able to do this?

there is a spanner light on in illuminated car on dash
AU Auto Mechanic: Gary, Australia Car Mechanic replied 2 months ago

Is that with the odometer?

That is a service light, won't be the cause.
