Go to Auto Zone and ask the to run a diagnostic with their OBD-11 computer. This may still be a free service. Write down the error code/codes displayed. This should help pinpoint the correct sensor.

You need to get the diganostic code read my your local mechanic, It may be a simple problem like O2 sensor or similar. You can check the code meanings on http://www.bluejag.co.uk/

Hi is this petrol or diesel?
Most likely cause is one of 2 things, EGR valve Exhaust Gas Recycler or The air mass sensor
the EGR valve basically resends unburnt fumes back through the exhaust not dissimilar to a small turbo in its function and kind of does the same job on a smaller sacle. Quite often though they do not fail completely they just get dirty, you can remove this part your self and clean it with carb cleaner, do not use anything else but carburetter cleaner. you will notice inside the EGR is a small sensor very much like a small diode, spray this and clean the whole thing as best you can. be careful not to touch the sensor just use the spray for that part. then leave to dry naturally, shouldnt take long.
When these go or get dirty the car will feel really powerless, you might get 50 mph if your lucky maybe 70mph. they struggle on hills and you need to be in low gears all the time to get anything out of the car, also the light comes on. They cost for this model between £180 and £250 so its well worth trying to clean it first as this is most commonly the cause of failure.
the only other thing it could be would be the air mass sensor, again you can clean these but to be honest normally when these go you will have to buy a new one. unsure to clean all the connetction / wires to both parts also and ensure they have a good contact.
a new air mass sensor is under £100. if you need more info on these parts please get back to me.

When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.
