Hello. My name is Mark and I will be assisting you today.

markthebooler :

I would suggest you check the car for a misfire, possibly a faulty coil pack and for a blocked catalytic converter.

JACUSTOMER-d1t7lrg3- : Is it something to do with the throttle body?
markthebooler :

That is a possibility but I don't think it would cause a noise from the exhaust.

markthebooler :

I would try my first suggestions of misfire and blocked catalyst.

JACUSTOMER-d1t7lrg3- : The engine light is on all the time bit the garagist said there is nothing wrong with the engine so y the light is on thn ???
JACUSTOMER-d1t7lrg3- : The engine light is on all the time but the garagist said the engine is perfectly fine.
JACUSTOMER-d1t7lrg3- : They scan the car 2 and after that the car was fine for 2-3 hours but thn starting to shake again
markthebooler :

Why haven't you mentioned the light staying on all the time before now?

markthebooler :

Also, if the light is on it means there must be a fault code stored. Can you tell me this code(s).

JACUSTOMER-d1t7lrg3- : H
JACUSTOMER-d1t7lrg3- : W
JACUSTOMER-d1t7lrg3- : Where can I find this code ?
JACUSTOMER-d1t7lrg3- : Is this code on the receipt print after the diagnostic?
markthebooler :

I would have thought so but if not you should call the garage and aske them for it.
