Engine Control System Failure and Power Steering Failure

Hi all,

After refuelling my car today (with the correct fuel I might add!) my car suddenly struggled to move. Two lights have appeared on my dash board, namely The Engine Control System Failure(EOBD) light and the Power Steering failure light.

Over the last couple of weeks I have had a few problems starting the car in the morning (not afternoons though).

After the above lights appeared on the dashboard, my speedometer showed no reading at all (i.e. zero) when I was moving at about 10mph! It struggled to go back down to zero again when I was in stationary traffic on my way home.

Any thoughts on what could be wrong?

Thanks.

Re: Engine Control System Failure and Power Steering Failure

On reading the information in the thread link below, I presume that the above stuff is related to a common fault with the vehicle speed sensor. The symptoms described in the thread match the problems I had.

Am I correct in saying this is a common fault? How much is it likely to cost?
