82k miles, MOT May I think.

EML is on for a misfire but it doesn't actually misfire very often any more. Think it's leaking core plugs fouling the leads with water.

Has an oil leak from the rocker cover

Paint is rough (swirl marks) but a good buff would sort it

Recent timing belt and aux belts.

£350, Cheltenham. Can pick you up from the station.

Can't find photos at the moment but I'll take a couple shortly. Here's an interior shot with the very subtle mats

May not be the core plugs leaking. It could be water leaking in through the washer jet holes on the bonnet. This then nicely collects around the plugs causing a misfire. My wife's fezza of similar vintage did the same. Fixed with bathroom sealant under the washer jet outlets. Common problem apparently.


Does it run it on gas? Its a V8 not a patio heater.

Mine had new plugs new coil and leads and was bone dry, a compression check resulted in a head of job to find a chunk of valve missing.

Gods polish hard at work - the paint is swirly and it's had those stupid door edge protectors at some point which have unsurprisingly fucked the door edges.

Then again it's hard to imagine an 04 plate motor being nearly 13 years old

These are/were my mates fave cars to mot as he reckons their well put together and easily accessible.
We made a few bits for these back in the day and the tolerances of parts were tightened up so it rings true.
Missfires now scare me though, especially after a coilpack* on my zaff turned out to be cyl 3 no compression 😩😩😩

It very rarely actually misfires - pretty confident it's a water to the plugs issue rather than anything else

Sounds fine then and most likely nothing major.
Mine was a constant misfire and then started smoking a bit.

Turns out all vaux are shite etc etc etc.

Hmmm, interesting.... I do like these. I always found them rather nice to drive and built quite solidly.

Just to upset everyone I hate them. The pedals being in the passenger footwell instead of in front of the driver fuck up my bad RH knee so quick that I'm limping after a 20 min drive. Plus even our Caddy is quieter on main roads.

Tried to trade this in against my Duster and they valued it at £1 :D

Probably found a buyer anyway.
