ECS light means you have a feedback carbureted model - which is a tedious chore of a thing to own unfortunately. They are notoriously difficult and expensive systems to repair. It might be something simple though - if you pull the lower kick-panel under the steering column you will see a gold box with a flashing LED (if the ECS light is on) on the side of it. Leave the panel off and drive the car till the ECS light comes on. The codes will then be flashed at you via the LED on the gold box - it will be long and short flashes in morse code. The long flashes are the first digit and the short flashes are the second. Tell us what codes you get and we can tell you what the code indicates - it's probably a faulty coolant sensor or O2 sensor but it could be other things as well.
