ENGINE MANAGEMENT LIGHT

2001 Daihatsu Sirion

Engine Performance problem
2001 Daihatsu Sirion 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 41, ooo miles

After driving a short distance the engine management light comes on and stays on until the engine is switched off. When switched back on the same thing happens. Also, when I remove the petrol filler cap a small amount of air under pressure escapes. I have only just bought the car and when I contacted the garage was told it was a minor fuel problem due to the car being stood for some time on the forecourt and it should sort itself out. If not I was to take it back, but I would still like some independent advice before I do. I am a basic DIY mechanic so if there was anything simple I could look at it myself, Cheers,
Ian.
