Hi guys - still messing around slowly with this!!!

 

Had a window this morning so changed the spark plugs and ignition leads for new items - still no different.

As before, can't spot anything obvious from poking around under the bonnet... does anyone have (or know of a link for) any decent diagrams of the intake system and vacuum pipes, so I can make sure I've checked it all???

Also, where would the fuel filter be on this car?

 

To save you reading the whole thread again - it's a W reg 2.0 16v which is hesitating/misfiring under load at above 80%(ish) throttle - fine below that, just a bit slow!!! No warning light, doesn't hunt at idle, etc...

 

I've found a local mobile mechanic who says he can read the codes (if there are any) for £10, so I suppose that could be the next sensible step???

 

Any other ideas/suggestions appreciated!!!

Must be someone who can tell me if the four plugs should be identical, of if there are indeed 2 x AYFS22P1 & 2 x AYFS22PG1, as per the ebay link above???

Surely there's not two plugs of one size and two of another???  Would love to know so I can order some at the same time as another 10mm plug socket!!!
