Check air filter and have throttle body cleaned replace fuel filter if have not done so in a while add fuel injector cleaner to gas tank.

Thank you so much the air filter and throttle body cleaning fixed the problem just waiting to see when service engine light going to go off

You are welcome. Do you think it's worth a best answer check.

I spoke too soon it started again :( I've changed air filter cleaned throttle body new air filter and put gas treatment

There is two things I would like you to do first go to a parts store like auto zone and have them read your codes from the check engine light being on they read them for free and since you put in fuel injector cleaner take vehicle out on road and hit your passing gear a few times this well help clean the fuel injectors and remove any gum and carbon build up. Be careful no speeding ticket. You do not have to do them necessarily in that order.

Do the fuel filter first.
