    Default Emissions Light

    Hi All,

    On a return journey from shopping yesterday I spotted the emissions light was on (not flashing). Donít know if it was on when we left the house. Car doesnít seem to be down on power and have just filled the car up with petrol so donít know yet if the mpg is affected.

    If I leave it will it cause any problems?

    Going on holiday in 4 weeks so donít really want to have to cough up more cash on the car. Already had brake pads replaced last week.

    the emissions light is a warning that it's running rich and it may well be damaging the catalyser.....it does really need to be investigated before too long, even just to put your mind at rest..

    Would you believe that when I started the car up last night the light went out.

    Exact same problem happened to me Kev. Light came on and then following morning it went out. I'm due for an M.O.T soon so she'll be in having a service. I'll ask my mechanic and let you know if anything needs changing.
