1.6??
Injector probably...
Buy one (or 2) from a scrapy. You'll probably need it in the future..

(it saves me typing it all again )

definately do a test with a multimeter to measure the resistance of each injector using the wiring harness connector at the right hand side of the fuel rail. my previous posts explain in more detail.

Re: brava hicking

test injectors with engine switched off. you cant disconnect the injector wiring harness with the engine running, well you could but it would cut out.


if you havent tried replacing the HT leads yet, then change them, its always one of the first things you should try. leads, plugs & air filter can cause all sorts of problems and should be changed regularly.

Re: brava hicking

touching the HT leads you should not get any sparking as they are insulated. definately change them.

any new HT leads will do, just get whatever your local motor factor supplies.

yes coxhoe in durham, it is a nice place

are you near me?

Re: brava hicking

30 ohms is an unusual reading, the high resistance could suggest a corroded connection on the injector wiring harness, or even a damaged wire. usually a faulty injector will have lower resistance. you'll need to check the wiring on the injectors carefully.
