Hey, I suspect my engine is miss firing(unless it's idling rough as guts!) i've put my hand at end of exhaust and its all smooth apart from when it stops for a split second(or a disterbence) you can also see the engine, when *suspect miss fire* it will run smooth, than the engine will move slightly out of pattern...

it only does it when it's in idle.. but if i put it in drive and put foot on brake, i can't anything out of the ordinary + engine looks to be running smoother, i put in park.. the revs will hunt slightly, and disturbence in the idle pattern and visual of the engine you can see it

I have dipped, and sanded all the dirty s**t off the spark plugs, i've advanced it slightly... my injecters were reconditioned about 8 months ago

any other ideas? maybe the leads?
