I've just bought a mk4 1.6, and having driven on the motorway for the first time today, the engine management light seems to come on once i get over 40/50 mph (drive in the city mainly).The manual says its not an urgent fault and the car goes into a safe mode, but needs to be checked out. Just wondering if this may explain why the fuel consumption seems so terrible?
Also, the windscreen wipers are shafted. I can turn them on but then when i turn them off they'll stop in various positions, anywhere except where they're meant to! So i have to spend the next minute clicking the stalk up and down until they stop in the right place. I know its hard to say whats causing the problem without looking at it, but just wondering whether anyone has come across this before or whether it sounds like an expensive job?
