Has anyone else had problems with there 1.6 HWDA petrol engine where by the EML light keeps coming on. Last time it did this it was diagnosed as a spark plug failure due to water ingress on top of engine from windscreen. Tonight it has reappeared along with a slight mis fire. Car was struggling to achieve 20mph earlier. Anyone else suffered this?

sounds like a bad coil pack or HT lead at a rough guess - have you got any errors?

I can't get it put on the diagnostic machine until the morning

definately get it plugged in, you could try the dash trick if you have the trip computer and see if that shows you an error code?

It's at the garage this morning. Was definitely misfiring all over the place this morning

Mis fire on cylinders 2 and 3 cause by water getting into plugs from a leaky washer jet

THere is a thread on here about stopping that, I would suggest it might be a good time to consider buying an engine cover as well!
