hi Hazi, my car is now at a autolek, if anything pops up, i will let you know. cool.


hazi i think u might have carbon buildup ... but the idling is due to a sensor best you do diagnostics

And what might be the cause for the engine light and where can I get help? Please!

the engine light is telling you that something is not in order u need to go to a workshop that has a diagnostic machine n they need to plug it into ur computer box and it will then give you ur fault ... replace that item and ask them to clear the codes .... if your engine light is still on then perhaps its something mechanical and not electrical

the enige light can be taken away when you disconect the battery. leave it for 10mins and put it back on. drive for about 3km/s then the light will go away. first ahnd experince


sold this car long time ago, couldnt find the fault and drew the line R25+K expenses. this is a sour topic for me now... hahaha
