159 2.2 Flashing Engine light/lumpy engine?

Hi guys - I had my chain belt replaced about a month ago and the car has been going great, however I think a new issue has occured? The car is a 2006 2.2 JTS, with 48,000km and battery was replaced about 3 months ago.

This morning I drove my car to the first set of lights (about 100metres away) and the engine started to feel extremely lumpy like it was going to conk out any second. At this point the engine management light flashed/flickered for a good 20 seconds. I featherd the accelerator slightly and the lumpiness went away and so did the light and for the rest of the 40minute journey (lot of stop start) it ran perfectly.

Is there something on the way out here? Perhaps it was a cold start and the engine management thought there was an issue? Ot is there some underlying issue I need to have addressed?

Many thanks
