Engine Mangement Light and Noise

After an hour drive today and sat in lots of traffic a orange light came on the dash (pics here). It's not as the manual says it should look and it sounds more throughty than normall and there is a metalic clink when getting higher in the rev band.

it's a little 1.6 T spark

My Dad thinks it may be the manifold, but he is as little educated as myself when it comes to motor mechanics. We did go over a quite a few speed bumps and did hear the sump gaurd ground once, but there is nothing leaking.

Had probs with the radiator fan not coming on, but this is now fixed, so it's not that.

I'm due to be driving to Italy tomorrow, so not great timing.

Any Ideas and anyone whom knows a good garage in reading arae???
