    Professional Diagnosis expert can detect the fault easily with scan equipments if there is no check engine light is present. But a tin box mechanic will surely mess up with the vehicle and surely do some new experiments on your vehicle at your risk and cost.

    Irshad is good .. knowledgeable and experienced
    first thing to do in check engine light is try resetting ... if it doesnt go then u can asses general area by symptoms like a chocked CAT will kill the acceleration and pick up, etc

    Get the O2 sensor cleaned. It may have residues on it. And yes Catalytic Convertor can cause engine light but there may be something else. Get the vacuum unit checked also for any leaks.

    Sorry for late reply.

    Irshad is way ahead of now-adays so called mechanics. Work by the book, and understands his work actually.

    Nothing could be done unless you get your car be scanned and come up with the code number and Freeze Frame Data. Diagnostic Trouble Codes are the most accurate way which lead to reach the actual problem.

    Check engine light can be due to any number of issues. Which include but not limited to O2 sensor, ignition wires, busted spark plug, faulty injector and sometimes ABS malfunction. If you got engine light at high speed, then it's probably O2 sensor.

    Mine used to light up whenever I did over 70km/h and turned off after restart. It turned out to be a faulty fuel injector and I never got the light again after replacing.

    But your first step is to scan the car.

    Did you scan the car to see the error code?

    I had exact issue. It's common knowledge that you will get engine check light if you remove catalytic converter or your O2 sensor has carbon/residuals on it. Even though car works fine otherwise. If you notice the dashboards of other vitz on road or signals, almost 50% of them has engine check light.

    In my case, it was a malfunctioning fuel injector. Once replaced (Kabli/1000rs) the light came back only once or twice for few seconds, which also resolved after replacing a corroded harness/grip. Don't worry about engine check light, it usually means to have your car checked soon. It may just be asking a regular maintenance like replacing spark plugs or clogged cat-convertor.

    I heard a rumour that Pakistan is shifting to better quality fuel from Nov-2016, may be someone would confirm if it's true.

    ( Personally I have started to dislike JDM cars, good quality build but have lots of engine and cvt problems/ batteries reaching end-of-life or tempered odometers. Way too many variables to worry about.)
