Question Espace 2.0 16v 1998

Hi Y'all,

My daughter's Espace misfires when starting from cold and has difficulty in idling. Once warm things improve a lot, even though there is still a slight lumpiness at idle consistent with running 'rich'. Above idle things seem okay. Have fitted new plugs, HT leads, both coils , air filter plus oil & filter change. Old plugs were a littel sooty but this may be caused by the daily school run! Could it be a 'sensor' problem? Don't want to start replacing probes and sensors willy, nilly as that could work out pricey. Have an OBD code reader but cannot find the 16 pin diagnostic socket (if it has one) so, don't know if this might be the cause.

Appreciate any help....many thanks from Peter356a.
