Another interesting thing is that the yellow light comes on even when i just turn on the ignition and not the engine. All the lights come on, then all go off except for the yellow engine light.

Now i did another test drive and it's really weird again. Stutters constantly, especially at low rpm. Perhaps a cylinder misfire? Gonna take it for diagnostics on monday.
