    Question SXI Occasional Miss Fire

    Car - 1.6 16v Astra Sxi (3 door) 2002

    I have started to notice that the car has started to miss fire very occasionally say maybe twice in a day. Seems to mostly happen when Im just plodding along in any gear it will just miss then carry on as usual, not when im revving i might had, it happens when Im just driving along.

    Any ideas,
    Cheers Chris

    You say it's "Miss-firing" but are you 100% sure you're not just interputing "judder" as it can feel the same?

    I get the "judder" effect in mine especially when I've just been tanking on at 60mph plus and then I slow to say 30 or 40 and let the car roll freely with no throttle.

    twice in last month my car, coming off a junction, I've floored it, its made a noise but no immediate power had to lift off out of gear back in and try again :? is this 'mis-firing' as you say it.
