Check / clean/ replace MAF . If engine light on and scanned with Citroen diagnostics it should show what is triggering the light .
I have a spare xsara I will swap MAF over I have spine trouble hence having to use garages
I have an identical spare car but been relying on garages due to disablilty but I can get a friend to do the swap thanks.
