    Pre coil pack failure symptoms?

    Well as some of you will know i had a coil pack give up on me yesterday... i had to unplug the injector and drive about a mile to pick up the new one... All sorted now...
    To be honest the car did feel a little down on power and slower to pull , It feels great again now but is it just the plasibo (sp*) effect?
    I thought they either worked or didnt??

    I ask questions because i change my mind so much. If i ask questions you have already covered... just leave it be?

    Its the same placebo as the hype behind the TFSI coils I reckon... fresh coils, stronger spark, more effective burn... arguably...

    TBH... my car always feels faster after spending some time driving my Mk2 Golf... soon get used to it... ;P
