Sounds like the baffles have gone in the exhaust or the cat has collapsed

Surely accidentally sitting in an Aston Martin, is right up there with "He accidentally fell on a knife... FOUR times."

I think the Lambda sensor isn't the problem. This one is OK when the engine light burns after a miss fire.

You has to theck the ignisson. The rest is a result of the miss fire.

That's making a big assumption that the ignition is causing it. Can be equally caused by fuelling, compression and valve problems.

I think our hero's best bet is to have it properly looked at.

Probably getting to that point. Sure you have a garage local to Stow you can trust Dave, if not and your Mrs is still up this way regularly the mechanic I use is pretty cheap and normally good...

Yes, but 75% of the time it is the ignition. Thats why i ask for a proper picture. I now there are some problems with ignition coils in the past.

Having owned my own business working the spanners I would contend that if you said it was directly ignition related 25% of the time you would still be overstating the case.
