22nd August

Broke down today :-( The car started miss-firing slightly and it seemed to get worse. When I pulled up to a junction it stalled. It would start again but only with lots of throttle. Oil pressure looked good, temperatures all fine. It was clearly an electrical issue. I was about 3 miles from home so I tried to see if it would keep going enough to get me home. An awkward journey when it stalled at every junction. About a mile from home it decided enough was enough and I pulled into a layby.

A quick look under the bonnet and nothing was obviously wrong. I coil-over-plug leads looked slightly raised, so I reseated them. Engine started and ran smoothly again, so I drove home. No further issues, so this is something I'm going to have to investigate further. I spoke to a few knowledgeable people and the leads are very reliable. Next job is to have a look at the spark plugs. I keep a spare set in the garage.
