Ha! Actually I meant she is misfiring on one of the cylinders, not cylinder no. 1. BUT, as it happens I checked to see which one it is and it IS No.1 anyway, so the EBS relay is probably not the cause. Anyway, stripped stuff off and there is a lot of red liquid around the bottom of the airfilter - in fact the heat strip is covered in it and so is the intake on that side! The only thing I can think of is that its oil from the air filter irself - been over-oiled and is causing that mess?? Doesn't seem likely but what else? Anyway the seal around the velocity stack on no. cylinder is covered in "oil" so wasn't sealing at all which could be the problem. Is that likely? Anyway, checked the plug lead on No. 1 and that gets a spark so I'll get myself a plug spanner and make sure the plug is OK. May as well change the plugs while I'm there... and get a decent air filter as well.... and I'm going to ask in the wanted/for sale section if anyone has a PC3 for an 05 S (I'll get her firing on all 4 before messing around with a PC3 though).
