I know its not an air cooled problem but some one might know..
my daily driver has got a miss fire and I think its the Sparkplug gap.

does anyone know what the gap should be?

engine 2.3L
V 5 cylinder 170 bhp
coil less ignition.

thanks

Simple test - if it is missfiring at something close to tickover, run it at that speed and pull plug leads one at a time until you find the one that is giving you a problem.

Its more likely to be a coil pack gone - the V5 has 5 coil packs,one per plug. I had one go on my old V5 newbug :D

OK pulled the leads and found no spark from Number 2 so ive got a new individual plug coil from GSF and bingo running fine now and the warning light has also gone off too.

Thanks so much for your help..

now another problem

I cannot get in the boot is there a way of openning the boot from inside the boot with the seats down.

There is no noise from the actuator at the boot lock but there is a click sound and the lights flash.

Help please

Thanks

Pete
