hi there. i'm new to this website so may not have gone the right way about this but need help figuring out whats wrong with my gti. decided to give the engine a good clean the other day and used my dads steam cleaner. since doing this its been misfiring constantly and seems to have dropped a cylinder. any ideas whats wrong and how i can fix the problem without sending it 2 a garage as moneys tight. thanks for looking. regards Jamie.

Hello. Have the spark plug holes filled with water?

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
