Alex 21. I know the difference from a Miss Firing engine under pressure, to a valve bounce.

Before i had genuine renault plugs in my car. I would reach 120mph and my engine would miss fire.

After genuine renault plugs. I can now reach 130mph without any missfire or valve bounce.

Also i have gained about 8mpg extra on an average tank of gas.

Its very hard to get valve bounce in top gear unless you maybe going downhill on a motorway.

Valve bounce occurs when over revving in lower gears.
