    Default Engine lumpy now Engine Management Light is on

    Hello,

    I had a previous thread in relation to the engine feeling lumpy well today it seems worse and now the engine management light has come on.

    1. Is there anyway to read the code without expensive garage equipment.

    2. Has anyone else experienced this before, outcomes resolutions

    The Car is a 1.8 Peterol 52 Plate

    Pedal test only works on specific engines/years. you can get a code reader for about £20 on eBay then ask on here if someone can tell you what the codes mean.

    Honestly don't know. You got an andriod or iphone as there is a free code reader you can get. Presume the misfire could be a glow plug or wiring
