    a3 1.6 sport firing on only 2 cylinders

    hi guys, got a 2000 plate sport, the car is firing on 2 cylinders only, i got a new coil pack and tried that,exactly the same.i have clipped an inductive timing light to each of the ht leads and there is nothing coming out of the coil .just wondering if there are any common faults that i should be looking for? i am presuming either a wiring problem or a faulty ecu. no warning lights lit or flashing on the dash to indicate a problem. and ideas appreciated!

    Check your camshaft angle sensor and wiring mate.
