The check emission system warning light came on. The workshop cleared the light - clean purged v QB - thats what they did.
And now the light is back on again. It disappears occasionally and then comes back on again, though I havent been able to figure out what causes it.

When I start the car in the morning the Slow down or shift up message shows. If I turn off and restart the engine, the message disappears.
This happens only in the mornings, and rarely, after it has cooled down during the rest of the day?

any ideas on what could be wrong?
