Vehicles (17 Jan 2019)
You can now add the vehicles you own to your profile as little icons that appear in your profile and alongside your posts.
This is a bit of an experiment. Take a look under the "REWARDS" menu across the top of the screen for the vehicles "ADD/MODIFY" option.
Let me know how you get on.

I had a G16b engine in my garage and could use the coil pack from that motor while ordering a new one, guessing they are mostly the same.
I bought the new one from ebay but those cheap ones might fry our ECM when failing.
When there is a warning light i think you most likely got a sensor issue.
Get the fault code read out as they say.
Such readers can be bought on ebay and most well stocked car supply stores.

Otherwise pull the plugs to see which one looks bad. This way you'll see what plugs are in it.
Pop to a local motor factors for plugs and maybe a coil pack. There's loads of good motor factors out there who know their stuff.

Looks like i'll have to try to re-tap spark plug thread in situ. The car is old and i reckon to do it properly the head'll have to come off and it'll cost too much for a garage to do it. has anyone else had to re-tap the head before?
i'm surprised the car actually ran at all. it always drove well and started first time with no unusual noises at all.
