    Help Me Get My Petrol Astra To 200k

    Hello there, could do with some engine advice. My 1.6 Astra estate 1993 has just been for a mot and come back running rough. It judders when i pull off and idles unevenly. The problem dissappears after driving for a while. The car has done 190k and i'd like to get it to 200k just to see if I can and because it's got a brand new mot and i'm skint.

    Any ideas or advice would be well appreciated.

    Cheers
    Fraser.

    I assume it's the 8v engine? Last one I saw doing that, a new set of plug leads sorted the problem.

    As said try a new set of plugs, and see what happens. A good clean up should help.

    if this doesnt help then clean the EGR with carb cleaner if fitted - check the hoses if its the C16NZ model.
    Clean the ICV whilst ur at it too....
