The timing of firing or tuning of the engine is needed with the Distributor to be checked for worn out contact points. As a precaution clean the fuel & air filters too.....sodeep

What is the spark plug gap for a 04 1.6 toyota avensis

Great that you are checking/measuring the spark plug gap...many people overlook this can not count on the new plug having the correct gap...Most plugs with today's electronic ignitions use the 35 mm gap...however, your best answer is to ask your Auto Parts store what the gap should be when you purchase the new plugs...Good job, hope this helps.

Mercedes Benz W220 misfiring

Presumably you DID check the gaps in the spark plugs before you fitted them? If unsure, remove and: a) check the colour of the deposit (if any) on the plugs ... should be light brown, not black. b) adjust the gaps on the plugs - refer to manufacturer's recommendation. If all this seems to be OK, then test each spark plug lead. It's possible, though unlikely, that in removing the leads from the plugs that one or more has been damaged. Best of good luck!

HELP! 2001 MERCEDES BENZ S280 Engine and EPC light on!?

You will need to take the car to Autozone to have the codes read. It is impossible to tell what the problem is by having the lights on. Autozone will check the codes for free. The lights come on when a sensor gives a bad reading, and there are hundreds of sensors.
