    Help needed ASAP please. Possible coil pack failure?

    This morning my car lost power and sounds like its on 3 cylinders.
    Im hoping coil pack , Vag com says mulitiple misfire?
    Is the safest way to check which if any coil pack has gone to have the car running and unplug the injectors one at a time? hopefully one will make no diffrence to the engine note ??

    Is this the easyest way?

    Please help as car is stuck at work.

    if its misfiring on idle pull the injector wiring plug off one injector at a time... if the engine note doesn't change then thats the bad cylinder

    Could also be a spark plug

    Once you found which cylinder is not firing, swap coil packs around and check again

    Thanks people,
    It was a coil pack,
    Number 2,
    Ive asked Audi if they still honour the recall. Im waiting for a reply.
    The coils were all genuine but ive had to just stick a BERU one in to fix the outstanding problem.

    The RS6/TT hitachi "e" bolt downs are said to be the most reliable, if Audi don't replace yours. Mine have been sound for 18 months.

    the bolts downs seem to last people fairly well on S3's.

    Amazingly, the 3 wire bolt down BERU oem coilpacks were still going strong on the track car at 216k miles, having never blown one from new, I know of several 200k+ AGU's all running their original coils.

    Yeah a VW specialist mate of mine says he's never changed an AGU coil pack. He also said I should keep the bolt downs and not bother with TFSI ones. I think it's like these s2000 filters. Going from old tired parts to new ones is always going to be better.

    Any news on the recall? Since Audi won't do my corrosion under warranty they can replace my coil packs instead!
