eobd light on and funny noise coming from exhaust and car conking out!

had the eobd prob and few weeks ago light came on, then cleaned filter in engine as it was full of leaves, light went out.

yest, put petrol in car went for a drive, then car was chugging along, then conked out, then started again, there is a flapping noise coming from the exhaust, and a smell, of petrol, have been told by friends spark plugs may need replacing?. any ideas.

thanks

Re: eobd light on and funny noise coming from exhaust and car conking out!

it was serviced in November, we bought the car from a second hand car dealer, and to be honest we have had nothing but aggro with it.The gearbox went on it after having it two weeks, it was under warranty, but we waited two months to get it back, you see it's a Y reg automatic sporting speedgear and they had problems getting hold of a gearbox, it got fitted with a recon one, we manage to get 200 quid off the dealer for the inconvenience.

The finance company Paragon were useless to say the least. Then around two months ago the exhaust fell off, corrosion, the dealer offered to pay half towards to exhaust, so we paid 40.00 quid.

And now this! put new parks plugs in earlier this evening, no luck, spoke to fiat dealer glyn hopkin whilst i was down there getting the plugs they said if i bring it down the can do a diagnostics on it for 50.00 quid, but its getting it down there not far but car conking out all the time. there is a really bad petrol smell coming from exhaust. just hoping it's not too serious.

Sounds like it's missfiring on one or more cylinders, hence the funny exhaust note and fuel smell.

Most likely cause is knackered HT leads on 1.2 16v's. I'd check these first.
