General maintainance - Can Answer This?

When starting from cold my engine management light has started staying illuminated, then it goes out again after a minute or so. Any ideas what needs replacing or attention?

Well it is indicating that a fault exists, most likely one of the many sensors that you have fitted.

Unless you have the expertise and necessary equipment it might be prudent to have a diagnostic check carried out (cost around £50-£70).

This should then identify the problem area with a fault code i.e P ---- 4 numbers.
Although it costs to have the check, it is sometimes better than having items changed in the hope that it may be right.
