    Is it normal for the engine light to flash for about 5 to 10 seconds after starting the car? Service light is also on and oil change is due. Does that have anything to do with it? Car starts fine and no strange noise from engine. Condensation was present on the engine at the time of start up...

    I have just had my air con re-gassed however the air con is not coming on now at all - the light comes on but pump doesn't kick in. Any ideas? The outside temperature reading has broken and is reading -5 degress. Could this be affecting it? Or is it related to the regas? Thanks in advance

Idle when station randomly gets stuck at 900 rpm vs 700rpm (for example) a car off and on sorts this problem. 2. when at idle intermittently the idle will drop low and the car shakes. I have had the car checked...
