Hi..there sorry for the delay..
Ok..you need to be sure they havent damaged the lamdba probes that fit to the exhaust..wiring..usually when an emissions lamp warning does appear it mean the ecu has detected an emission fault via the exhaust sensors..it will be generally ok to drive it ....the sooner you get it back to be checked out, the better.... but its probably just warning of a faulty sensor or similar..The diagnostic test is whats needed to find out why the light is on and the garage will have to do that for you..as long as the engine doesnt have any missfiring or performance issues it will be fine..however as long as you do have somesort of breakdown cover to back you up in the event the car "may" go into the limp mode..then least you wont be stranded as they say..best thing to do is to take it easy during the journey and as soon as possible get it checked out..even if it means going over the exhaust system again for any small leaks..i do hope this helps..apologies for the delay
Thank for your answer but needed to leave early the morning I will take my car back to the garage tomorrow
