Unsteady tick over...

Found my 1.4 8v to be hunting on tick over a few times lately,

So tonight i got the tool box out quick removal of air box pulled each HT lead off and blasted with de wetting fluid seems to have done the trick so assume even though the engine bay gets hot damp lingers on in the plug or coil pack caps... will see how it goes over the next few days its in for service next month so if that aint solved it words will be had

Re: Unsteady tick over...

i did have a coil pack replaced back in march.
i still get the issue occasionally. although when it was replaced i got check engine and the eml on. which wouldnt go off even whilst restarting etc.

Re: Unsteady tick over...

must be standard across the range then, my 58plate 1.4 16v bravo seems to have picked up this nasty habit, granted its due for a service soon so will have to see how it is after that
