General Comments
All good until 1 day when I accelerate away the car misses like mad. It has started missing when under idle now too. If I put my foot down easy, it hardly misses and seems to go somewhere but still not right. Also the injector light comes on now and then, can anyone tell me what the problem is? I checked all my pipes, can't find any leaking pipes. HELP PLEASE.
