92 manual 122k
started to miss fire while i was in scotland, driving fine then just started running rough.
garage there found oil in the first spark plug only, cleared it, new spark plugs and patched me up so i could drive home, suggesting a front rocker gasket replacement, distributor cap & rotor arm. cruise did not work on way home, when it had operated fine prior to miss fire / patch up
Had these all done yesterday at local garage, distributor / gasket / rotor arm. (first spark plug appeared oil free) car now still continues to miss fire. cruise still does not work. it is very rough at idle and pulls very poorly when accelerating.
Please help - i am no mechanic, however can access a good mechanic now (not same as went to yesterday) so any ideas what direction to go would be helpful.
what sort of costs will i be looking at ? is it fatal?
