Hi everyone,

The wifes car has done it again, whenever i get a day off it breaks down. this time the car is sluggish at starting unless you give it some gas, and when the accelerator is floored there is a popping from exhaust at about 3000 rpm. If the steering is put on full lock the car stalls. The rocker cover gasket and leads were replaced about 1500 miles ago.


There is also an orange dashboard light which has come on which looks like a gearbox is this relevant? can anyone explain what the dash warning lights are all for.

Please help with advice the wife is nagging me to death.

Thanks in advance

The orange dashboard light is the emmisions light.

Do a 'paper clip' test on it to read the fault codes and post them here.

See the 'How to' section.

Hello,

My first guess would be crank angle sensor :).
