I'm not sure what the car does violently, as u seem to have had a word edited out, but if the light is on, u need to have it checked out (especially if it's not performing properly). Most auto parts stores will read engine codes at no charge. Bring it in asap, have them explain (and write down the #'s) what the codes mean, and what they recommend u do to fix the problem. U can post the info here if u need further assistance.

Engine management light on. Changed the particulate filter and lambda sensor. Lights still on, car slow to pick up speed. Any ideas pls?


Have the engine light codes scanned for problems. The vehicle may be in limp mode causing the transmission to start off in second or third gear causing slow pick up.

If you downshifted into second at too high of a speed, you may have broken some major parts. I would get it checked by a professional who can properly assess the damage.

If car shakes violently when brakes are pressed, this is probably the rotors.

If car will not shift gears, you better get your wallet out, because it is probably your transmission. An engine diagnosis will not pick this up.
