Hi there, my engine is running very rough at the mo. When i start the car after it not being used for more than about 4 hours it seems to get some sort of short repetative fuel starvation problem or possibly a miss fire for about 10 minutes then it clears up and is fine. Any ideas at all????? Oh and the engine has done 135000 miles which could have something to do with it!
Hmmm sounds similar to my old 1.4. My problem was perished valve stem oil seals, when the car was left for more than a few hours, oil would seep through, causing the car to run extremly rough for the first few minutes after starting, until all the oil in the chambers had burnt off.
