Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

hi thank you to all of you who have taken the time to post the very helpful topics. i'm experiencing an intermittent misfire fault, plugs and coils changed K40 re-soldered, where should I look net please?
Evening Mocam, do you have fault code reader if not then you really need to get one then it will tell you which cylinder is misfiring or whether it is s random missfire.
Then you can retest as you swap or replace parts and see if you are getting anywhere.
On eBay for £12.00.

To get ignition you need fuel, compression and a spark, if you have replaced the coils and plugs and they are working OK then the misfire could be down to lack of compression or fuel, try some Techron concentrate see if it clears any blockages in the injectors its available on Amazon about £15.00 a bottle.

It cleared my misfire and makes it run a lot smoother.

Regards Stuart.

Welcome from Madrid...

Resoldering the K-40 doesn't always work, if diagnosis doesn't clear any thing up, is there any way you can get a hold of a different one you know that works to try ?
