Read this true story below for example, It happened to one
of our customers and I have seen numerous similar cases.
The car engine misfired. The new owner decided to take the
car to a main dealer. The garage traced the problem to a
misfire, they plugged in their OBI Reader diagnosis
computer, which suggested a faulty spark plug. they then
bought a set of spark plugs & fitted them. When this did not
cure the problem, they plugged in the OBI again, which then,
further in the machines memory, suggested: coil packs, The
garage then purchased, with the car owners money of course,
a set of coil packs, which still did not cure the problem.
The mechanic then scratched his head and tested cylinder
compressions, one read 150, one 175, another 165, another
175.( now we are into the realms of statistics. you can make
of these what you like ). The mechanic was convinced that if
all of the cylinders did not read exactly the same, this
must be the problem. The mechanic removed the cylinder head,
re-lapped or fitted new valves, replaced the cylinder head
gasket, reassembled, tested engine, and guess what? the
misfire still occurred. The Garage insisted that their
mechanic has done the right procedure, trying to justify
having now spent over £1000 of the car owners money trying
to fix the misfire, and still it misfired.
So, now the garage thought the engine needed a new cylinder
head at a cost of £400 plus fitting, so another £1000 of the
car owners money was spent by the garage. After fitting the
new cylinder head, the misfire was fixed..... However.
What the garage did not tell the owner, is that in fitting a
new cylinder head, they must of necessity fit a new inlet
manifold gasket, in order to bolt the original inlet
manifold to the new cylinder head. The old gasket had a
small score running through it, causing it to leak and suck
in air, causing a misfire. This is a true story and all the
above work was carried out by a main dealer. The customer
insisted on taking with him all of the replaced parts to
After carefully examining the alleged faulty cylinder head,
It looked perfect, however I clearly saw the score through
the inlet manifold gasket. I fitted the alleged faulty
cylinder head to a different car, and it was perfect, and it
is still running perfectly today. The manifold gasket cost
£4 and it would take half an hour to fit. The main dealer
turned a £30 job into a £2000 job. This is why we give a
back to base mechanical
breakdown warranty. We will find the problem, and sort it
