    Hi can some one please help i have just changed the spark plugs on my v6 3.2l vectra c gsi and it is now running really bad, loads of smoke on initial start up no power and engine warning light on dash when acelerator pressed.
    The car was fine before new plugs fitted.

    Are you 100% sure the coil packs are fitted properly?

    confused

    well they only go in one way and the 2 retaining bolts are done up tight, could they still not be fitted properly as i found it very hard to get my hands to the rear one ?

    Yeah fixed it was a small piece of rubber that had fallen off the coil pack, it was stopping the current being passed from coil pack to plug thanks for the help.
