    Car Misfiring??

    For a while now my car (1.6 SXi) has been "jerking" while coasting or decelerating around 2000 rpm. Accelerating is fine, seems a bit sluggish but nothing major.

    there is no warning light on so no fault codes to read. Ive changed the lambda sensor and ran some fuel injector cleaner but it still does it.

    What could it be? A while ago when the spark plugs were changed, one had gone black. But once they are changed it makes no difference.

    Im wanting to get this sorted as im wanting to sell my car soon. Anyone know whats wrong?

    Sounds like the ignition rail (coilpack) easy to do but will set you back approx 110 quid from vauxhall
    This is vauxhall country...on a quiet night you can hear the fords rust!!!!!

    The EGR valve has been changed already. It was a mechanic who changed the plugs initially. Also the service has just been carried out (5th year) last month so new plugs were fit then.
