    Default Bosch Spark Plugs

    Hi All

    I replaced the spark plugs today with these : http://tinyurl.com/6grlaj5

    I've taken the car for a 10 mile drive and noticed everytime I stopped the revs were fluctuating. Even when the car is at total standstill with only the engine running the revs still fluctuate

    Any ideas please?

    Apart from fitting Vauxhalls "own brand" plugs, no.

    And they're much the same price, as are a lot of their service items.

    Put the old plugs back in to see if it sorts it, if so, buy new of the same ones or get Vaux ones from the dealers.

    I removed the coil pack this morning, re-seated it and it seems to have done the trick, so many thanks for the advice :0)
