    Petrol coming out of exhaust 1.6 BGU

    I’m going to rule out the valves as the car has just had a new head gasket so when I took the head to be skimmed they pressure tested the valves and gave them the all clear. The car was showing a misfire on cylinder 4 before the head removal and I put it down to the coolant getting into that...

    Sorry to revive this thread but seems he most relevant my swirl flaps are giving me issues, bank 1 the rod has detached and is super worn so will fall off again, and on bank 2 I’m getting the engine light on, so instead of repairing I’m thinking of physically removing them from the manifold...
