The light keeps going off and never on when at a garage did it once with the AA man and read misfire in no3. Just going to throw it over to a garage we think as could be a number of things that are replacement swaps so let them find out what they are.

Bloody cars

Just a hunch, but get an emissions test. Wally light winking on and off but registering no fault code (they'll probably leave a trouble code but you'll need the manufacturer specific computer to read those) is often a cat or lambda problem, and the latter especially can cause stuttering and hesitation.

Ah, I don't know that, and it strengthens my gut feeling. Could be cat too. Don't know a lot about these specific engines, so unsure if they have pre and post car lambdas, or just the one.

Could be a good call, that especially if it's on the "wrong" side of it. Manifold crack?

Not that it really fits all the symptoms as good as the above, but a possibility of baffles breaking up in the exhaust.
