Hi Jase,

I'm no expert, but if it was my car I'd be trying 3 easy things first:
1) A couple of tanks of high octane fuel.
2) Redex injector cleaner
3) Has the car been doing lots of short, city driving? A good blast on a country lane after 1 & 2 above may help!

Anyway, as I said, I'm no expert, just saying what I'd do! I'm sure others will offer more mechanically minded advice! :)

Just be aware that the " Injector " light is not actually an Injector light, it is an Engine Management warning light. This could come on for many reasons, the only way to really know is to get the Codes read. Some Indys will do it for free, some will charge about £50, no harm in asking your local guys.

Alternatively maybe another AO member near you can help......

No harm in trying the clean up but I suspect that this may not help a lot.
