Not good news tonight.
Started the car OK, then noticed a spitting noise from the exhaust intermittently and it started to run ruff, like it was on 5 cylinders.
After some investigation I pulled all spark plugs and found that #2 was really black and appeared a bit wet!
All other plugs where a bit black and sooty but dry.
Cleaned all plugs and reinstalled.
Car started and ran fine for 30-40 secs before the ruff running started again.

Guessing I'll need to do a compression test.

Not sure it the wet plug was fuel or oil!
