    Engine problem

    hey all,

    have a slight problem with me car, when i accelerate hard the engine management light comes on and sounds like its miss-firing (deep scooby sound)

    have thought it could be 1 of the following

    AFM sensor going
    Spark plugs need changing
    Coil pack has gone

    Any one had this problem or any ideas on what the problem is??
