    Angry z18xer 1.8vvt wigan area missfire

    got a 1.8 sri had problem with intermittant misfire under load vx always said computer says no fault so no warranty claim cough up for tech2 time

    now got constant missfire on cylinder 1 have read codes have swapped plugs in cylinders 1 and 4 incase it was duff plug (missfire should have moved cylinders) wasnt still cylinder 1 i've always been convinced was coil pack breaking up under load and think its now had it.

    was wondering if anyone near me had the same engine and would let me use their coil pack for 5 min to confirm my diagnosis.

    the car is 07 and well within warranty but dealer is useless and this fault owes me £100 in tech 2 fees to date and this close to xmas i really cant afford to waste any more

    offering a car wash in exchange and a nice cup of tea or coffee milk and sugar optional lol

    I have one going spare out my old broken 1.8vvt engine, which ran fine, just top end was knackered. Yours for £25 posted, if it helps you out. TBH I'd normally let you have bits from the old engine but wanted this as spare so kinda like something for it.....
