So i was doing some donuts in my Mito and i forgot it in normal, and i got an ESP error then the engine stoped and the check engine showed up. The car wouldnt start and i let it sit for about 5 minutes then I tried starting it and it wouldnt start until i had the gas pedal down. The car now starts ,the ESP error dissapeared but the check engine light is still on. What problem could it be ?
My Mito is a 2010 1.4 multiair 105hp

ESP has thrown a warning as a result of what you were doing to the car. Engine light on can be for any number of reasons and only once you have the codes will you have a starting point for determining the cause. I suggest trying these manoeuvres in a Dacia instead and preserve your Mito for more normal ones.

The check engine light is gone, that was the first time i tried something like that and surrely the last

Thank you for letting me know, I’ve had my driver license for 2 years and previously I had an fwd Audi and never did anything crazy in it, but when I got the Mito I really started getting into cars
