Misfire

Hi i am going to look at a proton savvy 2008 tomorrow, the guy said it has a misfire on idol but it doesn't notice when driving, he said he has changed the coil pack and plugs, do you have any idea what else could be wrong with it? He thought it could be a burnt valve? But im not a mechanic so have no clue, if it is a burnt valve any idea what the cost would be to fix it
Thanks
John

Re: Misfire

Burnt valve?
Could be but if it is and you need to pay someone to repair, budget a grand.

Plugs, coils , are favourites.
Could be duff injector.
Could be sensor or controller such as throttle body .

Test drive, look and listen.
If it doesn't feel right or sound right, unless at a right decent price, walk away, plenty of decent motors out there if you are paying retail value.

And don't fall for the old lines "but it'll be an easy / cheap fix". If its that simple then let them fix it themselves first before you part with any money or "buy it before the next interested person I've got comes along in the hour but bring it back in a couple of days and we'll have another look". No way ... protect your cash if the seller is being cagey.

Don't take without giving in return

Re: Misfire

hi


makes me wonder why the seller hasn't had this fixed before selling, my thought is he has had someone quote to fix and its more than he is willing to drop on the price.


As RW and DD say there are a lot of cars out there and even more in the next few weeks as the new '17' plate comes out.
I'm not a Proton fan, recon a good low millage Hyundai I10 is a better buy with better equipment. The write ups in the motoring press are also more favorable. My Father (octogenarian) has an I10 Auto which I have driven and it is a very neat compact motor and even a short motorway run (Cardiff to Swansea and back) was totally stress free.

He has said he would take 700 so if the repair is 1000 not worth it, he did say as its only a slight misfire we could drive it for a long time?
