Help Please -147 running on 3 cylinders
My 1.6 147 2002 is only running on 3 cylinders.
I went out this morning and started it up and after approx 2 minutes it intermittently started misfiring, then just ran on 3.
I took it for a short run up the road thinking it might clear, the car had no power and then I got the Motor Control Failure warning up.
I tried disconnecting the MAF but this had no effect still ran on 3.
I've had a look at the Spark Plugs in no1 looked a bit black and sooty and the other 3 looked ok and all the plugs were dry.
There is no mayo under the oil filler cap to indicate a blown head gasket any ideas what to look for?
