    Hi everyone,

    Bought the car a few days ago, seems to be ok, no unusual knocks or rattles, only thing I've noticed is the dashboard warning light (spanner symbol) comes on now and again for a few minutes and then goes off again for no reason.

    The car still drives ok and doesn't go into 'limp home mode' or anything.

    Will have a look through the forum to see what I can find out.

    Cheers,

    Frank

    Does the light show on cold engine start? Check your glow plugs.

    Hi, thanks very much for all the replies.

    The light has usually been off when starting up the car and then come on a few minutes later then gone off again or come on before I've started and not gone out straight away. No particular order.

    Not been on any long journeys yet, just 10 mile hops so no idea if it will develop some more issues but will look for a 'how 2' over EGR valve and boost sensor cleaning and hope for the best.

    Also noticed it doesn't always start 1st time, this has happened 3 times now but started on 2nd or 3rd try so not unduly worried unless anyone thinks otherwise.

    Thanks again,

    Frank.

    Hi guys I'm new too, joined after google search for water build up in passenger side footwell!! Stupid VX design flaw under the pollen filter! But lots of info on here and fixed the problem thanks to loads on here!

    I had the same problem with the engine management light and it was the glow plugs needed replacing! Easy enough but heard they can be a b*tch to get out if old! One of the threads went on mine lucky was just enough to fit new ones and they've held and problem solved!

    I think someone on here says warm the engine first and the glowplugs come out easier but don't burn yourself!!
