SOURCE: Check engine light comes on

I experience the same thing too although driving isn't hampered whether the light's on/off. It's a flip back version.

What I do notice is an oil leak in the gear box. And hard starting in the mornings. And after the engine's been on a while, it very nearly shuts off on restarting. And the air conditioning's non existent. And..

My Mecho says I'll have to take it to a high class show room to have the warning light checked with some kind of scanner but advises I have enough in the bank before visiting!!

Err.. not a solution is it..

It's the Check Engine light. It indicates tht the computer has picked up a faulty electronically controlled component. The best way to go about is to bring the car to a dealership and ask for a scan of the computer.
You can stil try to remove the negative battery terminal, wait for 10mins, reconnect it then let the car idle for 10mins. This procedure might erase any sporadical fault and then take the car for a good run.

SOURCE: my 2006 mitsubishi colt check engine light comes

There are many emission sensors in the car that will make the engine light come ON. Not to mention the big list of trouble codes for the engine light. The engine light code will give you a big clue of what's causing the accelerator pedal problem.

Best way to find out what's going on engine light is to have an auto-parts store hook up a engine code reader and tell you what the code means and the problem. Most auto-part store will do this for free.

My Mitsubishi lancer GDI won't turns the engine on and just wen its about to run it doesn't rev and goes off

You've obviously taken on some water in the engine somewhere you shouldn't have. These newer computer-driven engines are tricky, Few of us fully understand them. Park your car in a place where the sun is on it, hood open of course, for the longest period of time possible. Wait it out. Meanwhile pour some gas drier in the gas tank. It'll probably be OK...Don't do that again.

Engine cuts out (sometimes) when accelerating from, eg, a stop street, traffic lights, then will start again straight away

I would suggest a fuel pressure test. It sounds like you may have a clogged fuel filter or a fuel pump that is not maintaining adequate pressure under load. Obviously the fuel filter is the simplest and quickest place to start and might be best to change before doing the pressure test. Good luck.

Toyota Prado 97 (petrol). Can jump start but has loss of power when put in gear or lights, whipers or anything else turned on. Battery indicator says ok.

It sounds like you might have a bad alternator. You can't always trust you gauges. Jump it off again and check the voltage at the battery. You should have 14 volts. If it is less then that you have a bad alternator. Good luck.
