    Default 1.8ls petrol slight miss possible cause?

    I have just changed spark plugs air/oil filter and new oil.
    I was getting this slight miss before the service and i thought the new plugs would fix it.
    What would be the cheapiest option to begin with?
    Thankyou
    Tony

    The 1.8 can suffer from a flat spot as you accelerate away in first or second gear, if so it generally means the throttle body requires removing and cleaning. If its a missfire you should feel it more than just moving away, and in all gears.

    It happens on all gears at low revs and in all gears any ideas?
    Maybe dirty fuel or fuel filter?
    coil pack?
