I had a similar problem with my Ford Ka...

Hi there, my Ka had a similar problem, which was traced to an HT lead, once it was replaced - all was fine. You've replaced them - did it make any difference? Just a thought, that's occured, they have been put on the correct plugs, as this would give a similar symptom to what you describe?

Definitely sounds electrical to me, maybe an earth strap being loose or a poor connection somewhere.

It might be quicker, easier & cheaper to get the car to an auto-electrician unless you are very confident in your own abilities to check this.

If its any consolation, I don't think its a major repair that's needed - but its better seen to sooner than later - you can damage your catalyst.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
