There is just the orange check engine light engine is the 1.0 eco boost18000 miles car drives fineReg x99mlp

Hi thanks

ok if the vehicle is driving ok ie no missfiring or boost issues then it’s fine to use with the mil light on until you can get it booked in

commonly on the 1.0 ecoboost the issue lies with a faulty front oxygen sensor heater circuit

this is an emissions related fault thus it illuminates the MIL light
