In Topic: Vibration As I Accelerate

when you say vibration, do you just mean a rattle, or do you feel it through the steering wheel or pedals?

car went in for a service. the battery just wasn't holding the charge. as for the misfiring, its still there albeit nowhere near as noticeable or as often as before. plugs were changed- the old ones were apparently pretty manky. might tie in with the egr fault code?

battery has died twice in three days. first time was thanks to an hour or so with the radio on whilst the missus was in asda, the second from maybe 20 minutes with the boot open while changing a tyre.

i haven't fully examined the battery, but i'm thinking its not suitable for my car. from what i can see, it isn't a silver calcium battery and may just be a lead acid instead. would this cause any of the problems i'm suffering?

there is also a general mankiness around the battery but i'm unsure if its been leaking or if its dirty spray water entering the bay.
