Hi..there..

If the engine or car still seems to perform well..then there shouldnt be any reason why you cant drive it still..provided its not a long journey etc...Obviously unless you have code reader yourself? you will need to to get the car scanned to see what fault codes have been logged..it could be something minor maybe a sensor going faulty or emissons fault..you'll only know if thats the case once you have those codes...the garage should take a note of them, clear them, then retest to see if its permanent fault or not..and then take it from there..hope this helps
