    I'm pretty sure a knackered temperature sensor will cause this problem of holding the engine back and causing the coolant light to come on.
    Could be worth changing, only about £15 and a doddle to fit.

    My thoughts are same as yours mr monty.

    Mine also drove like a dog when crank speed sensor was dicky, but that didnt bring any lights.


    Yes your afm may not be providing smoothest of drives but I very much doubt that is cause of your major issues
