1.9 dg petrol

Postby VERAT25 » 12 Feb 2018, 14:06

just started van after laying up since nov 1

started up and run fine/ up to temp no water leaks/radiator hot/
took for a run and seems to be running on 3 cylinders intermittent. sluggish in 3/4 gear

lots of rain and parked outside for 3 months/ possibly water in petrol ???? not sure
will change plugs this weeekend to see if it alters running

any comments greatly appreciated

thanks

if it will idle then disconnecting one lead at a time from the disi cap will show up which lead or plug is at fault as when you remove it and reconnect it there's no change in running

some wd40 or contact cleaner on the lead ends and cap may help

don't pull the leads off with your bare hands whilst standing in a bucket of water........
