I know this is not Civic related, but its a bit late in the day to be signing up to other forums, or ringing mechanics etc so I was hoping someone can help or offer some advice on a SEAT Ibiza please...

Wife came home tonight to tell me her engine oil light came on and she thinks she needs the oil filling up, so I googled the correct oil etc and then decided to check the level beforehand, anyway the oil is fine (Silly woman)

Turns out its the engine management light thats on and the car is juddering a bit at low revs. So does anyone have any ideas what this may be? Also will she be ok to drive it or should she somehow push it to a garage tomorrow?

Thanks in advance

My money would be on the MAF, or coilpacks. Coilpacks are a known weakness with VAG cars.

Can she drive it...yes, but if its not getting a spark on 1 cylinder then you'll have fuel contaminating the CAT and it will cost you in the long run.

Thank you, will try get it into a garage tomorrow. Only problem is she needs it to get to a meeting first thing in the morning, which is about 14 miles away

agreed. on 1.9tdi audi a3/ passats / golf i was going to buy on all forums i checked before hand the 'ba' ranges between years 54 reg to 56 reg all had bad injectors/ coil packs albeit lovely cars otherwise

new injectors fitted cost 1k out of warranty dealer price but sometimes waived at discretion if full vag fsh . 2l tdi were fine otherwise
