Apologies for not tagging this to another post but really can't find one that exactly matches my problem. I bought this little car back in march and has ran really well for the first 7 months but now seems to give a slight miss between 2 & 3000 revs when accelerating from second gear on, seems just a little worse in 4th & 5th but far from cutting out altogether but you can feel a slight miss. just hope someone might give me a heads up before it has the potential of getting any worse.
Many Thanks Team...

Hi there might just want a set of spark plugs, or if its a C you can do a code test using the peddles.....sounds like its a 3 cylinder engine....i would also look round for air leaks on the inlet manifold etc....from Fred in Essex.

Cheers Fred. I'll check for any cracks for air intake. As i am as new to mechanical knowledge as i am to this site i was wondering if spark plugs vary in quality and if so what might be a good buy? Not sure even how to find out if the car is c or d. 44,000 miles and everything else on the wee car going well. slight rattle under the bonnet but i'm putting it down to timing chain and not really all that bad. Thanks for all your helpful advice once again.....

Well a C and D have different body shapes, it sounds like it might be a D at that age, if it is i dont think you can do the peddle test, you would need a code reader...timing chains do rattle on these engines, i just had mine done at 82k miles...spark plugs, well Vauxhalls used to use AC, dont know if they still do, or Bosch or NGK...Fred.
