Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.
Are there any warning lights coming on?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes I have the engine management light on and I have had it checked out by PK Automotive they say it states ECR Valve sticking, but this should not cause the problem, the light has been on for about 2 months. This all started about 2 weeks ago when one day it would not start the RAC used easy start and had it recovered to one of their garage outlets they have done all the work 2 weeks later I have the van back and it know has this problem until now the van was perfect. PK Autos are at a loss £650 labour charge and the van seems to be getting worse, last night I drove up a large hill when I put the power on it shook/jerked like mad then the Multi mal-function light came on I also notice that I have covered about 180 miles to a full fuel tank PK Autos are at a loss so am I?
