156 1.8TS Sick Engine - where should I start to look?

1537 Views 20 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Ralf S.
Last night while driving up a hill, the car lurched and the engine management light came on, the beeper went of and Motor Control warning came up on the central display and it started running really it was on 2 1/2 cylinders.

So I have driven it home and parked it up and apart from a cursory glance to determine nothing obvious was hanging off, I haven't had a chance to look at it.

What advice would you give to me as to where I should start?

Cambelt changed a few months ago, its been running really well this last few days after 4 distance trips in the last week. Luckily for me, it did this a mile from home.

Any suggestions gratefully received.

If it didn't improve on unplugging the MAF then it's unlikely to be the culprit I would suggest.

Coil pack, or perhaps plugs. As has been mentioned you need to read the fault code(s) to proceed really.
