Suggested solution.

I followed some hints from another website. Take your car on a motorway, get up to and keep it at 70 mph for 1/2 miles.Don't accelerate or brake at all (unless you have to to avoid an accident). It seems to have sorted my problem. I think mine was because I only ever make short, quick trips and it never gets a proper run out. If problem keeps happening, I will take it to garage though, but for now it seems fine and no longer has warning message.
