You may be noticing that the car is idling very erratically instead of at constant revs. The car may also be cutting out, especially when stopping at junctions. These are common symptoms of this problem.

Engine management warning light

Problem:

If your car is running OK and the engine management warning light has appeared on the dashboard, it is usually due to a faulty lambda sensor. This sensor is responsible for measuring the levels of oxygen and fuel mixture from the exhaust to the engine. If this part is the cause of the warning light, then you may notice a higher than usual fuel consumption.

Models affected:

Solution:

Fitting a replacement lambda sensor will fix the problem.

Models affected:

Solution:

One solution to this issue is to drill small holes at the bottom of the headlight glass to let any water out. This will sort the problem and won't cost you anything.
