Spark plugs

Post by Richard_D » Thu Dec 27, 2018 12:12 pm

Hi all.

Had a slight miss fire at low revs and under load so I decided to treat the bus to some new spark plugs and also a new coil pack just in case. The old plugs looked really bad on inspection (see photos) 1 had a lot of crossion on it and was tight to get out.
3 year old car with 36k.

Richard.

Yes from new and only just out of warranty by 4 weeks so decided to fit new plugs and it's transformed the car.
