Customer Question

It's a 1995 626, GE model and it has an intermittent miss in the motor. The plugs have been renewed, plug leads have been replaced. My mechanic says that he thinks it is the inlet manifold gasket has a leak, but I'm not sure. The motor has never been opened and the nuts on the inlet manifold are tight. What do you suggest?
JA: Is this your first time dealing with this issue? What size is your engine?
Customer: 2.0 litre. Yes it's the 1st time dealing with the problem.
JA: Are you fixing your 626 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I'm trying to get it ready for my Grand daughter, and yes I'm a 'home' mechanic, but I do seek advice from a local mechanic.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: So far I have replaced the plugs and the leads, but it hasn;'t fixed the problem.

Disconnect the battery for 10 minutes then go on a good drive for about 1/2 hr making sure you dive on the highway for about 5 miles at 40 mph , then drive in the city doing stop and go driving .

The when you get home check for malfunction codes .

Had a problem very much like this and found it was due to using Bosch spark plugs so first check that you have good NGK or Denso plugs fitted and not Bosch.

Do you have MPI or carb. fitted .

It's an MPI, with new NGK BKR5E plugs fitted.

Thanks. I am getting the car ready for my grand daughter, who is still 15 old, so it is not a priority at this moment.
When I get the time and am able to do as you mentioned I will let you know the results.
Cheers
Ken.
