    Default Running lean....

    Still debating whats going on with my car lol.

    Basically yesterday I took out the spark plugs and this is how they looked.



    Three of them looked normal and one of them was white. Now all the spark plugs were correctly fitted and took the same amount of pressure to undo.

    From having a little browse on the internet looking at spark plugs etc a white plug is the sign of the car running lean? what sort of things can cause this and how can I try to solve the problem??

    Any help appreciated.

    Not that I can see, took it on a run to my sisters in Huntingdon today and the car ran perfectly tbh, so dunno if I'm worrying over nothing or not lol, it has been using oil but hasn't used any since I last topped it up.
