  8. engine light keeps coming on

    Hi, Not to add a bit of doom to this, But I had the yellow engine light come up on my people carrier (citroen C8) Asked Citroen about fault they said bring it in to check, The engine completely seized within a month. Now to repair it, I was quoted telephone numbers. They just stopped short to say I require a new engine. Be careful with this warning light. It could be a small thing or large. I now have a Focus.
