    Engine : 2.8 T V6

    Mileage : 62000

    Default 08 VXR misfiring and flashing engine light

    My VXR now and again misfires pretty harshly when I floor it, usually in 2nd or 3rd, and has a couple of times caused the EML? (light that looks like an engine/transmission) to flash.. but after it does this with the light the car usually judders pretty bad when I try to apply more than minimal revs. If I restart the car it stops and behaves as nornal though..

    I'm going to try new spark plugs, cause I know they can be a common cause of misfiring.. anyone else come across anything similar that could help shed light?

    Got me some spark plugs ordered so I'll see if they make a difference (figured I'd start with the cheaper option..) and then if they don't fix it I can move on to checking out the coil packs!
