I have an engine malfunction light just appeared on my dash board. It feels like a plug breaking down but would something as simple as that put the light on?

You don't appreciate a lot of stuff in school until you get older. Little things like being spanked every day by a middle-aged woman. Stuff you pay good money for in later life.

yes, if as you say you have a coil/plug breaking down the engine will run rich! this will be picked by the engine managment system mainly by the lambda probe and bring up the warning lamp! as excessive unburnt fuel will damage the cat!

Thanks Guys. thats just about all the symptoms there are. anything that puts the engine under load it does not like and starts chugging. Such as going up a hill. you have to change down, yes feels like someone pulled the choke out when the engine is warm. thats the best I can describe it.
