Check Engline light flashed orange, car juddered.

Post by markkernaghan66 » Fri Nov 08, 2019 8:07 pm

Hi all,
CEL flashed amber for 10ish seconds while doing 40mph, car was juddering. I slowed and it disappeared and hasnt returned.

Its a 2007 2.0l fsi petrol b6. Only 20k miles.
Any ideas? Ive no way to check fault codes currently. I use my car for deliveries and im wondering if i can keep doing so, as it hasn't returned. Thank you.

EDIT: I should add that I have checked the manual and it says engine exhaust gas fault but what exactly does that mean? Ive seen the cat mentioned a few times online when googling but its still not clear. Also if it was a faulty part then surely the fault light would keep popping up? This was the first time its happened since ive owned the car and ive only driven it 11k miles. Will see if i can get the fault code asap.

Probably not changed from new. Car is 20k miles so I'd say it's due.
