my powertrain warning light comes on now and again.
done the dashboard trick to find out the codes and 2 have flagged up:
codes 9601 & 5750.
I know code 9601 is - PATS Received Incorrect Key-Code from Ignition Key
Transponder (unprogrammed Encoded Ignition Key)
although i dont seem to have any problem with my key.
cant find anything about code 5750?
could somebody please help me out?

9601 refers to the key because the dash is part of the immobiliser system and has recorded the fact that an uncoded key has been put into the ignition, that probably goes back to the factory when keys were coded to the car.
I've had that too and means nothing of importance.
5750 is not a fault code at all, most of the info from the dash check means nothing useful, most of the data is dash related hexadecimal information that the dash recieves from the car on normal running. (raw data on fuel, revs, speed, temperature, etc.)
The only way to get proper fault data is with a code reader via the OBD port.
When was the car last serviced?
It could be something simple like a clogged fuel filter, low injector pressure or a low airflow through the filter.
If you haven't had a service in a while i'd recommend that.

Thanks for taking time to reply.
I had the car serviced only 3 weeks ago.
I will have to take it to a garage.

It's entirely possible that the filter is drawing in air.
I'd still get the fuel pressure sensor and crank sensor checked though.
