As the title says,
This morning, very cold (-20 Celsius), I started my car and it started ok, but the EPC light started to flash and the ESP symbol came on. So I turned the car off, started it again and it hasn't happened since. Should I be worried or is because of the cold weather? The car only has about 3000 km.

Re: Need Info re: EPC light in dash. (Terry1.8T)

A Flashing Light usually means misfires
A continuing misfire could be a number of things , like coilpack failure
especially if you car feels like it is running on 3 cylinders like mine did
( engines sounds like a lawnmower)
Also there is some threads about cold start misfires on here FYI
