Hi all

My wife's car is a 2006 ka 1.3 duratec engine

The eml came on intermittently a few weeks ago but car still ran fine but now it won't start, it will try and start every now and then but can hear popping noise from air filter, it has a spark and good fuel feed we called aa out that tried a different coil pack still nothing and plugged computer in and it came up with cylinder 2 missfire.

Does anyone have any ideas where to start please


Many Thanks

Hi thank you for reply

The only code was cylinder 2 misfire, the aa said
It has good spark and he tried another coil pack
Good fuel delivery, no air leaks etc
When turning engine over you can hear a popping noise
From the air filter like the timing is out but that's chain and been checked
The coil pack has a few cracks in the casing and when I checked
The resistance one was 01.5 and the other was 02.4 could it be the
Crank sensor?

Cheers

i would change the crank sensor & also check exhaust has no problems with it being blocked or partially blocked. i would also change the ht leads/plugs  and take out the air filter then try starting the car. try changing he ht leads and plugs first.just because aa man said they are fine you they can play up.
