Joined: 11 years ago | Fixes: 1 | Profile

When the engine starts first time cold the engine runs great no misfire, but soon as it starts getting to the normal temperature she starts misfiring at the slightest press of the peddle,the more i press the worse it gets. It's as though she's flooding. I've changed everything i can under the bonnet to no oval, can anybody help please?

remove the relay for the fuel pump clean the terminals up and replace should be ok once you have done this

I would say one of five things -

1 Ignition coil
2 Spark plugs
3 Spark plug leads
4 Head gasket (once the pressure builds up, the water is escaping into your cylinder)
5 One or more valves burnt out
