Hi,

I am getting the Orange engine shaped warning light on the dash.

The car is stuttering alot and there is a great loss of power.

Any ideas???

Also, is the car ok to be driving???

thanks

on the 1.2 this problem is most often due to a head gasket leak between 2 cylinders. its time for a compression test.

Hi, thanks for the help.

I had a diagnostic done today, turned out to be the ignition coil

Re: Car Stuttering + orange warning light

its a common problem. i keep a spare 1.2 16v coil pack in my garage because my GF has a punto with the same engine. if you get stuck for finding one let me know and i'll post you my spare for 20 (with free delivery) then i'll just replace it next time i'm at a scrapyard.
