Hello and help.

Post by Shipo282 » 11/10/17 22:00

Hello one and all. First off me.
I'm nearly old enough to officially be having a mid life crisis.
This appears to be in the form of a sexy little Mr2. Of the 2001 vintage.

So the season I found you lot. Well there's this little problem with the car. . . . 🤠😎


The engine managed light is on and the car won't go over 50. Is there any common faults that night cause this.

Welcome!

A multitude of problems can bring on the EML so you need to get the code read with an OBDII reader asap! Normally, a common thing to trip the light is a lambda sensor going (there are 3 unless you have had certain mods done or own an import) but this would not stop the car going over 50!

Other main Achilles' heels of the car (apart from lambdas) are oil burning (due to sticky oil control rings), brakes, steering uj and rear subframe.

Thanks for that. The problem has worsened so will get it plugged in and see whether she's a keeper or not.
