Engine light comes on


Recommended Posts


the engine light on my car comes on and stays on for one to two days and goes off for another day or two. I only started few days ago. 

Have used the onboard system (dashboard trick) but no codes showing up. 

Any ideas?? 

Ford Focus 2006 1.8 petrol.

try getting a code reader on it might show something:smile:

I'd be more worried by the oil consumption tbh!

Need the codes read properly for the engine light though.

Took the car to garage to get it checked 

- was told that it is "possibly valve stem oil seals or piston rings issue"

- and was quoted £200 to strip engine to confirm problem and that likely quote for repair would be around £2000 to repair engine. 

Please, I need opinions as regards the quotes etc.
