Re: Rough running - B18FT

Sounds like an air leak.

Some bolt holes on the inlet manifold go right through. Thats a typical problem spot.

Otherwise seal up the manifold end of the inlet tract, and blow in the air filter end to see if it pressurises.
Or put a tyre valve in a jamjar lid and use a compressor.
