ENGINE LIGHT ON, SLIGHT LOSS OF POWER AND SEEMS LIKE MORE FUEL - WHAT IS THE REASON PLEASE?

2003 Honda CRV • 85,000 miles

Hi, my 2003 CRV engine (or emissions) light came on a week ago and comes on then off - though more recently has been staying on. I feel a loss in power and feel it uses more fuel and was hoping you may have some ideas before I take this to a mechanic. I am from the UK and have very little mechanical knowledge. There is also a rattling sound from under the car however this may be a coincidense?

Sorry don't understand codes read cheap/free?

I am in the UK.

A mechanic can check this for free I was asking incase it was a known or obvious fault.

Thanks for helping.

Warning lights register fault codes in computer to give clues to problem. There is an access port to interface and read them.

If you get sticker shocked or an uncertain diagnosis you can come back and ask more about it. And also if you get it satisfactorily fixed you can post results and cure.
