NO! not the steam clean. Tiz why tiz good to run the engine at idle when cleaning....covering the air intake...you know a soon as you hit something dodgy!!
Bound to be water in plugwell or a lead gone from steam clean!

hi there. checked the plug holes and plugs. gave the plug holes a good blast out with air compressor and definately no water there now. someone else told me could be a plug lead gone so think i'll start there and see what happens. ordered new plugs today aswell just for safe measure. thanks for the replys
