Ok I have had my Mazda Mx-6 1992 V6 2.5L FWS AUTO for about 1 month. Its been running very well with 196,000km on the clock. I took it for a drive today and noticed the car when at idle droped to around 400-500 rpm and would idle kind of like a rotary between 400-500 revs so I imeddiately went to a service garage (Pitstop). They had a look and said my spark plugs and ignition leads are in bad condition and pulled 1 out that was not working at all + ignition lead sparking. Thats as far as he went on the inspection, but then went on to say that the car might not be holding pressure? He removed the radiator pressure cap and said this should be fizzing. So yea he doesnt want to fix it he would rather me get a compression test to see if its my head gasket! BUT THERES NO OVERHEATING WAT SO EVER! Car has been well looked after.
Ive had a talk to couple other mates they saying get the spark plugs and ignition leads fixed. But the guy recommended getting this test done but surely the problem was obviously the plugs and ignition leads.
Anyway I need some advice please.
