Hey guys, im hoping you can help me out with my completely stock xr6... she is getting almost a bit of a knock at idle when sitting at the lights etc... it only does it when its at normal operating temperature... ive changed the oxy sensor and cleaned out the throttle body changed the plugs and leads and have been running 98 octane fuel just in case it is knocking (which i doubt it is)... but nothing has seemed to work... im still getting really good milage 10 litres per 100ks... but this rough running is really getting to me... has anyone got any ideas?
Cheers....

What model is it mate as in year etc.
I had a similar problem in my ED turned out to be the rotor button and dizzy cap. Changed those items and leads and the car hasnt missed a beat since.
If its coil pack get the coils checked out.

By knock, i ment like pre-detonation of a cylinder...i have heard that being described as "knocking" before... sorry mate maybe i should have used the term pre-detonation... thanks for the input tho...
