Orange Engine Light Flashing!!
« on: July 29, 2012, 07:39:03 pm »
Just as I was thinking that maybe the car will be reliable after all, last week I noticed that when starting the car up from cold, there was a slight vibration which lasted for 5 to 10 sec's. This morning when I started it from cold there was a much louder vibration and weird noise from the exhaust with the engine light flashing on and off for about 10 secs. From the manual it seems that this may be a problem with the cat. Im thinking it maybe do to with the exhaust. Maybe a leak somewhere or a loose bolt or something like that. I am gonna try to take it to a dealer or specialist tom if I can but any experience/idea's from anyone else on this issue??

    Turned out to be an ignition failure so I changed spark plug and ignition coil number 1 and its fine now! :thumb:
