    Yeah miss fire has been sorted turned out to be a split isolator on the rear bank coil pack. The oil leak from the rear rocker cover destroyed them. but got a coil pack from smidbro Top Bloke

    Looks gleaming mate...

    I'm having a bit of a stutter on my 2.2 & I've got a slight rocker cover leak . could this be the same on mine ?

    Really sorry for going a little off topic guys.

    cheers i was going to paint them as well, but not 100% sure how to go about it. as there plastic i think i would need to do them in a primer of some sorts then spray them as the paint ive used for the throttle body would be too thick i think to paint such small bits.

    well with mine the gasket burst on the side of the coilpak so the plug hole were full to the neck with oil and was bursting out past the coilpack seal! no idea how long mine was like it, but surly worth pulling the pak out if its not to hard to check the condition of the isolators
