So jump in the car one Friday nightish say 27c after a 35c day,

Jump key in the ignition turn then the car does its finest earthquake impersonation it was quite realisict cause shock like crazy for maybe 15secs, and I mean really shook.
Then it just stopped returned to normal idel,(slightly over 1000 which is normal for the first min or so, on mine atleast). Let the engine run for maye 2 mins nothing unusual. Kill it, wait a sec, Start it again and fine no issue.

It did the same thing again 2 days later but not as bad,

What do you think caused it??

I have fuel suspisoins but I used 98ron which is the best you can get in Aus and got it from a high turnover reputable servo, Same tank on both occasions.

Mine does this when I get oil or water down the spark plug hole nearest the oil filler neck.

Rob,

Why do you get water or oil there? dodgy head gasket or something else.

Ever resolved the issue or does it just happen every once in a while.
