    problem with my motor

    hi all ive got a little problem with my motor basicly my exhaust emisions light is on most likely a lamba sensor but now my EPC light keeps on coming on for 10 mins then going off again but the car runs fine with no missfire or anything like that is it something failing like a maf sensor or something similar oh its a 1.6 fsi petrol engine
    off the road boohoo anyone got a gearbox for me lol!!

    Sounds like your along the right lines Fran, lambda sensor/MAF seem logical culprits, needs a scan obviously to confirm before you start chucking parts at it mate!
