I had all sorts of problems with the injectors and sensors on my wifes old StreetKA. A bottle of Cataclean and an Italian tune up used to clear it. Just give it a good thrashing as I found that whenever the car had been left for a while the injectors and the sensors must have furred up. It always played up when we had been away on holiday.

Delboy what is this sensor and how do I find the code? Should the garage be able to do this?

the sensor plays up sometimes. it mixes the air and fuel & if it goes wrong it will thor the engine management light on

here is a piccy of it

or maybe located here

it's a 22mm open sided socket needed to remove it. maybe best to ask a garage to do that

 

you can take car to small local garage for a check and ask them to turn the management light off as it stays on sometimes even if the fault has been sorted as your one maye have been a glitch & is fine.

look here for the obd to buy. brilliant tool to have

this is what i got it comes with a book with all the codes it generates cheapr than paying a garage to do it if they charge as it can be £50.. +
