well its not leads and not plugs so it reverts to coil pack maf or its a fuelling issue dont waste cash go to the scrappy and take a maf off and a coil pack try each of them if one of them solves the problem you know what oit is if neaither do then its a fuel issue either with the injectors or pump or it could be a sensor is gone totally diagnostics may be in order

Now then, I got a new coil pack for £20 so it was worth a gamble at that price. It now runs better than ever and fingers crossed it will continue. Not a bad job getting the old one off (as a novice with cars) but connecting the HT leads back was a pain. One of them was almost bent and had lost that little clip on the bare copper connection. I got it on in the end but perhaps I should look at getting some new leads too.

What I can't understand is if it was the coil pack, why did it seem ok for a while after putting new plugs on ? Surely it would make no difference.

Anyway, if it's sorted my fuel consumption which has been high will go down a bit and all for a mere £35 (including air filter and plugs)

that dodgy lead wont be helping things and the engine vibration can make it not make proper contact so ide definately replace the leads genuine fpord one sare the best
