Car was running fine earlier on today. Got back in thisevening and drove down the road and started feeling lumpy under reving. Straight away i thought ooh **** coil pack has gone again, and the engine managment light started flashing as it has in the past when coil packs have gone.
I turned around and headed back home, and started to smell a herific burning smell. Now would that just be the coil pack? Or could there be an underlieing problem causing the smell?
To try and describe the smell, it smelt like an electrical/clutch burning type smell.
I checked the oil and that was low, i did top it up about 6 weeks ago, not sure if that could be anything to contribute to it?
