Driving to work this morning, my engine started missing at low RPM, but once it got above ~2400 RPM it was OK. It stopped doing it for a while, but then started again about 10min later. I have a lack of tools here, so I am limited in what I can do, but I don't even know what the most likely cause is. Can anyone help?
BTW, I am going to try and find some plug leads close by so I can pick them up on the way home.
Also, I want to buy a fuel pressure tester, can anyone recommend someone who will ship to Australia?

Cheers,
Chris

The trained ear can tell if its a fuel miss or a electrical miss.
though its flat out amazing what new tune up parts will do.
maybe injectors also. though cap, plugs & leads are a good start.

Start with the easy stuff first.
Check the plug wires, both on the cap and on the plugs. You may have one grounding out on the hood or the valve cover. Lift the hood at night and see if there's sparks.

replace cap, rotor, plugs and wires as already suggested.
