    Default 'Engine' symbol light

    At work at the mo' so I'm not sure what this symbol represents.

    Fired up the beast this morning (6am, -1.5 degrees) and she turned over but stuttered and almost stalled, gave it some welly on the accelerator, still spluttered a bit. Noticed the orange 'engine' light under the fuel gage was on, (can't remember if this light should always be on or off)

    Anyway got to work ok, she ticked over fine at traffic lights, just been out to check, and the orange 'engine' symbol light is still on.

    Going back to the stealers on monday (just had the handbrake recall done)

    Any thoughts...?

    Hiya m8,
    it looks like its an emission light, if that's what it is than it should be on when you start the car and than after couple of secs should go off. Mine was on and off for about 3 months, had a codes read and reset, all sort of stuff and it turned out to be an EGR valve faulty, - cost me £150 all incl. to be replaced. Also in the meantime while the problem was there, the beast's fuel consuption went down from 44-45 mpg to 37-38mpg on combined driving. Just because the EGR was giving wrong reading to the computer. So check it out m8, get the codes read fitrst, all the best to ya
