Question about Cars & Trucks
The car has been turning on the engine management light for the last 3 days, its stable but also flashes. Any idea what we could look at? Will be taking it in to be connected to a diagnostics machine.
You don't give the make model and year, but yes the first step would be to have the computer scanned for trouble codes.
When the warning light is on and starts flashing it means the problem is serious and can cause damage to the engine or emission components.

im willing to bet that you had a coil pack fail on you. they are one of the most common failures on the 1.8t engine. another thing i would check is for any boost hoses that may have popped off if you were accelerating quickly.
but before you go and buy a new coil pack. unplug your maf sensor and see if it runs any better than before. if the problem goes away when you unplug you maf then the mass air flow sensor is bad. but if its the same then you have a bad coil pack.

Probably a defect lambdasonde or inlet pressure sensor (MAP sensor) it will show many different errors on the test readout ex: inlet manifold pressure, knock sensor, lambda value wrong, idle speed out of range, etc.
read out the faults,after delete the readout, then drive one day, read faults out again , compare the results, and change the components from test
