Just wanted to know if anyone out there has had this problem.
Engine fault light coming on randomly but lately coming on almost straight away.When this happens engine develops a random surge.Surge seems to disappear under acceleration.Engine light remains on until engine turned off.
Mechanic has put meter on it and apparently came up as P1709 which is a auto trans fault but car is manual and they can't clear fault.Another mechanic could not find any trouble code faults.
Have attempted to replace fuel filter but location is a mystery:-
Not near fuel tank
Not under rear seat
Not in engine bay
Assuming inside fuel tank but haven't been there yet.
PLEASE HELP as mechanics are at a loss
Thanks in advance
