Forum: Cars and Vans

Hello, I have an issue with my mondeo 2001 plate, engine management light comes on first time was months ago so dropped the battery and it went away for a couple months... any way it came back on again so did same lasted 4 or 5 weeks and back on. No idea what it could be levels are all good etc. any one recommend an obd reader for it I have a mac or android for software if you could also point me at that direction too please. Or better still if there is any one near Wigan that does

    yea read the how too's ... pretty much strip it down, clean with parafin I think or white spirits... and put back on with a new gasket.

    short journeys bung up systems on a number of cars i notice, a good run will clear the cobwebs out and adding a fuel cleaner to fuel every now and again will keep it clean,opels are well known for egr problems lol

    I tend to use high octane fuel hoping it will keep engine nice and clean I will be servicing it next weekend all being well, one other thing is it worth getting a k&n Panel filter for it 33

    about 4 air filters worth i guess?
