Brazil Chevrolet Astra Bobina de Ignicao – Ignition Coil Problems

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

Having problems with my Chevrolet Astra 2.0 liter engine.  After the engine warms up when running at a constant speed on flats the engine purrs.  When accelerating the engine will stutter varying amounts.  After a long run the problem is worse.  Going uphill it is also worse and forces me to downshift to be more comfortable and avoid feelling like I am lugging the engine.  The spark plugs have already been swapped in this car and the problem has been around long enough that it can not be blamed on bad gas.  The mounting is on a piece of thick formed sheet metal which might explain why a long trip is required to fully heat the possible offender up to fully manifest the problem.

For the following video: fisgar == in this case "catch".   Which is a very good description of what I am seeing.  It's not a full on engine die.  It's more of a hiccup.
