    Question another engine management light

    hi peoples,
    another management light question. gets in the car sunday morning, bare in mind it was frosty nite before and still quite cold. starts car, but it cuts out about 4 times just as it boots up, fifth time gets it to start, management light stays on and it is running really c*!p, as though the choke hasn't come on properly. turns off tries again same thing, third time starts car, revs go to about 1500, light goes off and it returns to normal after a minute?? something to worry about or a one off? btw, its a 99t sri 2.0
    cheers.

    best bet mate is get someone to read the error code... This happened to me then a while later my emissions light came on and it turned out to be the EGR valve... better be safe than sorry

    Mine did the same thing once, didn't start the first time, second time it went and engine light came on. Switched off for 30 seconds and restarted first time and no light. I called the vx garage and they called me in and updated the ecu or something. been fine since. apparently it was due to unburnt fuel going down the exhaust and the engine management seeing it as a fault.
