The things to look at are the ignition wires and the spark plugs. If the plugs have not been changed in soemtime (i.e. 30 - 40,000 miles), it may be time to purchase and install a set of either Bosch or Champion spark plugs. gapped at .030". This is a likely scenario but if everything is in good working order, it may be the sign of a more serious problem. Let me know what you find?

    Thanks for your feedback ... That was much appreciated... However, I checked all according to your kind guidance and still the car is a bit shaky on idle... Was wondering if there was a solution to calibrate the car engine electronically... Thanking you in advance

    You could also check your fuel filter, underneath and on the driver's side nearest the external fuel pump. Has there been any maintenance done by anyone else prior to this happening or possibly it sat for a spell?

Hi all.. My car is recently producing a large amount of black smoke ... And engine (quite shaky) just stop a low speed ( at a red light or so) specially when I turn on the AC. A friend told me that it...

Black smoke is usually excess fuel.
The problem could be faulty fuel injectors or the fuel pressure regulator. Or a restriction in the air intake. Or a faulty O2 sensor.
If you remove the spark plugs you may find the cylinder or cylinders with too much fuel.
If that is the case, you would need to test the injectors and the fuel system.

Hydraulic mineral oil (green) is slightly leaking after a long drive. This happened overnight in a parking position. Car has been most recently serviced. Thanks in advance for any feedback.

These engines use an engine driven pump to assist in the power braking assist. This should be traced by looking at any lines from the resevoir to the power booster itself. There is also the possibility of the resevoir being cracked (unlikely, but possible). If it coming from undetr the car, centre, and nearest the transmission bell housing, it is likely the fitting on the rear of the engine and will need to be serviced by a professional. Let me know if you need anything else.

How do I retrieve diagnostic codes from a 1991 Rolls Royce Silver Spur 3

you can use one of those silly code readers BUT it will not give you what the codes mean,and suprise,suprise ROLLS ROYCE will NOT give you the code solution is to take the car to a dealer and ask them to do a diagnostic report (in writing) this will cost BUT you can then decide if you are capable of the repair yourself.....alternatively you could try the RR owners club.CO.UK.(USED TO BE A MEMBER)
