    Ok I know it's a Vec B, but i've got a problem with it has a missfire

    It is a Z18XE engine and thrown up 2 fault's on the Snap-on scanner
    1) on injector number 2 open circuit
    2) Missfire on cylinder 4

    I've checked the the plug's there fine and replaced numbr 2 injector + all injector seal's. went on raod test was going fine, turned around and on the way back the EML came back on and started missfiring again and showing the same fault

    Is there something I'm missing??? or try next???

    Thank's Jay

    Possable, I could try swapping it over with my old vec B when I get it back as my dad's got it at the moment cos it's his vec that has the missfire.

    The coil packs may be different then. But I agree with the above, start with the coil pack

    the engines both look the same, the only two things that I can see thats differant is the throttle body and the Cat is mounted at the front under the exhurst manifold, The coil pack looks the same so fingers crossed

    Pretty sure the extra cat is so its euro4 and not euro3 - no problems there. The TB's are different as the x18 is cable throttle and the Z18 is fly by wire. Hopefully, nearly everything else is the same
