    Default MI 16 inquiry.

    Well It had to happen, my MI 16 that I just bought and was going so well has begun to miss on acceleration/underload.......sometimes the engine light comes on when it misses a beat then goes out.

    I will put a set of plugs in it but I have a feeling that it may be one or more coil packs....you can still drive it..

    I haven't looked at them (coil packs) yet but are these hard to change for DIY mechanic....

    Thanks for any help given.

    My Mi engine did that due to an oily plug hose after the rocker cover gasket gave up. I cleaned the plugs, leads and plug wells out with some detergent and mild turps solution, let it dry and put back, no problem. The spark was shorting out due to the oily film when under load.

    Thanks for that, I bought new plugs yesterday, the car had sat around for about two years.....I'll see how the plug change goes and then go from there.

    Is it early or late. 1.9 or 2.0 litre.

    My 1.9 (alloy block) did this, it slowly got worse and worse, till you couldn't drive it. Ended up being the TDC sensor.
