Have lost no 3 and 6 cylinders.Have replaced relevant coil [$80],have installed new plug leads[$50],checked all plugs,have done a diagnostic[paper clip method],reads 12 constant,but still only runs 4 cylinders.****!If i had wanted a 4 cylinder holden i would have bought a Camira!No not really I would rather walk or catch a bus or something,but could anyone give me some insight as to what my probs could be? Cheers.:bang:

Yeah ****!The parts shop where i bought my coil from told me that could be the problem, but highly unlikely as it is not common to give any probs,usually,but because they are expensive and im going through an unlucky stage at the moment[must have run over a chinaman or 2 and not realised]thats probably what it is!Do love my commodore,shes done me well,so i guess ill pay the money and get it fixed.P.S. You wouldnt know if vs wagons have a common problem with leaks around the boot area?
