hi

on way to work this morning had this warning appear along with the car running very erratically as if misfiring. i had just left a roundabout on a dual carriageway and was accelerating when it happened.

does anyone have any suggestions before i take it to the dealer who will probably want to do a diagnostic check and charge me a fortune to tell me something stupid like the plugs have gone!

any help will be muchly appreciated!!

Could be anything from a coil to an injector and half an hour on an examiner will help to solve the problem quicker for you :)

cheers pnl.

took the stilo to the dealer today and they've just phoned to say that it is a coil that is faulty. is this normal for under 29k on a 52plate?

all in though including the diagnostic check is #135pounds so not too bad, providing it solves the problem!!

hmmm...coil failure? common?












yep
Bet it's a Sagem coil too, not a Champion one?

Mine are all Champion :smugface:

What? There's no smiley for me being a smug git?
