Engine Light

Hi, can anybody give advice?

I have a 52 2.1 sport X Type. On the way home from work this morning i noticed that engine light had come on. The car does not seemed to have lost any power and it has not gone into limp mode. However i did notice a very occasional missfire at low revs, i took it to a mechanic friend of mine but he does not have the diagnostic equipment needed to get a fault code. The car semms to be running perfectly and is very baffling, can anyone give a suggestion as to what the problem might be, i am a bit wary as to where to take the car because you hear so many stories about people getting ripped off for trivial things. Can anybody recommend a good man?

I live in the Charlton area of South East london, is there anywhere good locally?

Many Thanks

I had a similar problem some time back, the engine light came on but for no obvious reason, the car worked well. It turned out, believe it or not, that the battery in my remote was low. When I changed the battery, opened the car from scratch and switched on, the light remained out.

Just a thought.

Problem Solved,

Turned out to be MAP/Barometric pressure sensor on top of the manifold. All you have to do is remove it wash it out with Wurth or WD40. Fault code is p0105.

Handy to know for future references.
