Hi..Just to verify........


What shape is the warning light?


And does the car drive normal?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I have checked the manual and it says it is the engine warning light. It doesnt seem to have much power when driving and it seems like it is going to cut out when I stop.

At the moment the car won't be ok to drive.but to a garage.or the alternative is to have the garage come out to you with there machine...The engine management light essentially means the cars ECU has detected a fault and stored a fualt code .this will need to be done by hooking up a diagnostic machine to retrive the code and pin point exactly where the fualt is related to lack of power etc..Becuase the EML warning covers a wide area of faults it will be kind of difficult to say exactly what the fault is. but once the car has been scanned? then we'll have a clearer idea as to what will need replaced " component or engine sensor " if required....
