Misfiring

Another one of these threads...

For a while now i've had misfiring, in damp conditions.
Checked under the bonnet, dont have a clue where and what im looking at, with engine on, i say 'What looked like small christmas lights'
It was misfiring when i reved it, went out in the car about 3hrs ago, so it's only been resting for around 3hrs and is misfiring.


P.S it's raining outside.

Re: Misfiring

HT leads sound buggered, did you see sparks jumping about all over them?

Re: Misfiring

Didn't really see them jumping, but there were the small spots of light all over the place. At first i thought it was just droplets of water reflecting, but its not...

Re: Misfiring

just go to your local motor factors (or halfords) and ask for a set for your car

ive heard 3 stories in the last week that would say other wise. one was they told a guy he needed h4 bulbs in the shop for mk2 headlights no mk2 have that same dude looked on website put reg in and was told h1 for 1 beam h7 fot the other, thats wrong too they have a matching pair of one or the other.

another was a dude went to buy ht leads for a 16v punto and was told same leads fit from 97-06 that is also wrong mk1 and mk2 have different ends for coils on a 16v, so same leads cant fit both

Re: Misfiring

well yes if you take what the youngsters that work in there say as fact then your likely to run into problems. I have never found the reference guides on the shelves to be wrong though.

But this is why i suggested to walk into local motor factors and ask as a preference.
