Tipo 1.4 IE Manual

Hello There!

Recently bought a Fiat Tipo 1.4 IE, to get me around town - Happy with it so far, but have started to get a warning light appear which looks like a Hose!

Unfortunately, I didn't get a manual with the car, so have not got a clue what it relates to (car maintenance is not one of my strong points!). Just wondered if anyone out there can help!

The car has also started to misfire whilst driving (judders on acceleration), so assume it is all related!

Thanks in advance!!!!!

Sounds that the light is ignition`s warning light. Maybe lambda sensor is not working good.

I had the same problem and have changed the leads to the spark plugs and the plugs themselves, but there is a fifth lead in the pack. Where on earth is that meant to go?

As for the manual, i just got myself one off ebay for 3.00
