The advice that I give is to have the fault codes read first after a test run. do not believe anything the seller says. If there are no faults recorded, then have the vehicle independently checked by an accredited motoring checking shop (Motoring club) use a fridge magnet to check for body bog and rusty panels. a passing certificate can be bought so do not rely on it as an indication of good vehicle.

An 02 mondeo lx had no oil in so I put approx 3l in. it didn't register so i put another 2l in drove to London was stuck in traffic,the car started chugging now eml is on and staying on any ideas??

Too much oil can aerate and foam up causing cavitation in the pump which will cause the system to not be able to lubricate properly. Drain the oil and put in the amount recommended by Ford.

I have a jetta 2002. One of the lights is this funny looking square on the right. It`s yellow. What does this mean?

this is the engine electonics lamp or eml, basically covers upto 2000 different codes, if it hasnt gone out its a permanent fault but if the car is driving ok not too serious if its major (petrol models) the lamp will flash. Refer to a good garage/ vw agent or specialized in diagnostics to fix.
