    Hi all,
    recently purchased an 02 Leon. This morning the diagnosis*/excess pollution
    lamp started flashing and the engine started to turn over slightly irregularly. Does anyone know what causes this and how it can be resolved. I've had the car less than 2 months so am very concerned by this.

    :(

    Thanks

    I'm going to take it back to the dealer and hopefully they will have the vagcom system there. If its an ignition coil is that a big job. Sorry total newb here.

    Do you think it is ok to drive it for the next few days though, as I can't make it to a dealer until tuesday!!

    Thanks

    ignition coil is a 10 minute job, could also be a MAF problem, try unplugging it and see how it runs (its the sensor after your airbox)

    ok, thanks, I'll try that and if not I'll let the dealer worry about it.

    Aye sounds to me like coils to. Not a big job.
    I now carry a spare just incase I need it.
