The light may not be a current issue, but without it, you're only guessing as to what caused it to come on.

If the light is now off, do we care what put it on?  ::)

We don't, but the owner of the car should be interested...

I can see the next thread... "EML light is on again. What could it be?" or words to that effect  :-X

What was the code... ::)

Thank God, as I have said, the light went out before I needed to establish any codes :D ;)

As VXL V6 said, the misfire would have pinged the light on. Code reader may show the stored code, even with the light off, but as said, not an issue now.  :y

........
when I got underneath the car to adjust the handbrake......

You get a much better balanced handbrake when you adjust at the internal brake shoes star wheel first.  :y

I did :y

To satisfy just you, the light was on because of plug number 4 mis-firing, and staying on when I drove two miles home.  I replaced the Dis Pack and so got all cylinders firing.  The light didnt clear straight away, but left overnight the check system settled down so when I fired the engine up again, all was well.  Simples.

I have been doing car mechanics, and now reading the OOF guides for decades, so am not a complete novice.  I was worried yesterday when the light would not go off, got reassurances on here that it could be very temporary, which it was thank goodness. :y

I am sure I will encounter more challenges with this now 18.5 year old car, as I have in the past, but I now do not lose sleep over a bloody car.  If the light comes back on, so be it. I will deal with it as I do with all challenges.

One of my daughters sons is partnered with a young women who last week gave birth to a baby by C section under emergency conditions at St. Thomas Hospital London, warned that the baby, a grand daughter for me, could not live long, and so it died 6 days later.  That for me at the moment is far more important than any fxcking car :'(

So you don't actually know what caused it to come on in the first place ???
It really doesn't matter, probably just an old code that cleared with clean starts.
It's best to spend that 15 seconds READING the code right in front of you and know for sure IMHO
EML could pop on again at MOT ,costing time and retest fee or worse

Unless Lizzie is one of those types that closes her eyes as she exits the motorway ON slip road and hopes for the best  :P
Covid, EML's, you worry too much  ;D
It's not my car ,so I'm not worried about Lizzie's EML  ::)
And she's unlikely to be on the roads I use when she does break down  :D
I was just giving a little advice  ;)
"fail to prepare... prepare to fail "
I'll get back in me Covid secure bunker  ;D

Sorry to hear about your Granddaughter. Some things are indeed more important than cars.

The misfire code was a presumption without the actual code.

Thanks DG.  Just rather sensitive, more than usual, at the moment ;)
