    HI can anybody advise me-I have got the EML warning light on the dash; my Z is a 2 000 cc six.The car ticks over like a watch but as soon as you pick up the revs it has a very bad misfire.I have changed the plugs plus the Camshaft sensor but it still remains the same.has anybody else had a similar problem on their Z?

    Worthwhile checking all the rubber hoses in the air intake system in case you have a leak, but ideally need to plug it in to a code reader first to get some idea of the actual fault.
