    Default Emission light on

    Hi

    I have an 06 SRI 1.8 VVT

    Engine been running smoothly since got the car, now done 12K in 10 months. Pulled away on a cold engine yesterday and lose of power followed by emission light came on.

    Engine judders when being worked now, a bit like the low revs pull away in first. Managed to do the pedal trick to get some codes for the problem and they are

    0304 - cylinder 4 misfired (which would fit with problem)
    0564 - not sure what that means

    Has any one had similar?

    Could it be the coil pack?

    Any help would be great.

    The car is booked in next week for a service (not been properly serviced since 2010 I reckon and done over 30k since then!!)

    Just wondered if anyone knew the possible bill am looking at to fix the emission light problem?!

    Thanks

    Paul

    Just clocked 78K.

    The cruise control has been switching itself off at random times since I got the car 10 months ago.

    If it's not been serviced for 30K miles, the oil will be useless
    It is well documented that life expired oil can cause the Emissions Warning Light and throw up false warning codes
    The warning codes are correct but are a cause of the engine trying to work with the life expired oil

    Sadly you need to wait 48 hours for the Emissions Warning Light to clear
    Normally it activates the Safe Mode when detected, and this may be the erratic revs experienced

    Try spark plugs first as its the cheapest option, if not coil pack. As for the cruise control most likely then clutch pedal switch.

    The oil was changed 10 months ago when I bought the car and they put a new battery on, don't think they did much else though. Certainly no filters were changed.

    Is that 48 hours of no activity or just 48hours?

    Thanks

    Once the Emissions Warning Light has activated it requires a full 48 hours to reset, it just remains on as a warning

    So the problem has been sorted along with a few other issues.

    1. new plugs to sort out misfire on cylinder 4 - luckily avoided need for coil pack
    2. new rear shockers are near side had failed and leaked over rear brakes
    3. new rear brake pads
    4. full service inc all filters and oil
    5. 4 wheel alignment to sort out uneven front tyre wear

    Got the car back after 2 days in garage, quite happy with the results, it should drive much better and more economically now!! All for £350, a bargain!!

    Thanks for the advice, again

    Happy motoring (again!)
