Injection system failure???

Hi, I was driving along today all hunky dorry & then my injesction system failure light came on. Its a punto mk2 1.2 16v sporting 02 reg, the engine was really shaking & making a chug-chug noise like thomas the tank engine and there was a definate loss of power.

I've spoken to someone at my local fiat garage & booked it in for next week, they've told me not to drive it and that it could be miss-firing? to be honest i dont really have a clue as i've never encountered a problem like this with a car, but I was just wondering if anyone could suggest what might be the problem & what it might cost me to get it fixed?

I know the fiat dealer will be more expensive but I trust them & would prefer them to do any work on my little punto.

Thanks!

Re: Injection system failure???

If its misfiring (shaking like crazy at idle and down on power) I would bet a night with Christina Applegate that its HT leads, probably no 2. Easy to see, pull out the HT leads after removing the airbox and you will see a light grey patch where its been arcing out on the solid part of the lead.

You have no class, and neither did her character. First one to say who she played gets a banana

Christina Applegate played the delectable slutty dumb blonde Kelly Bundy in "Married with Children".
