    Coilpack question

    Does anybody know whether a W-reg Golf 1.4 16v would be using coilpacks?

    A friend of ours is having problems with her car and it sounds like typical coilpack symptoms - stalling, lumpy running, hesitation etc.

    How long is a typical VW warranty? Is it 3 years like the Audi ones?

    As far as I know, they use single, or 2 coils (on wasted spark principle) with conventional leads.

    Sounds more like air flow sensor, but not worth playing either way, just see if you can get diagnostic codes first.

    Re: Coilpack question

    VW and Audi have the same warrenty.

    I don't know about a W-reg but my mate's R-reg 1.4 16v polo hasn't got individual coil packs but a single one with a distributor.

    Best way to tell is to see if there is a distributor bolted on to the right hand side of the head.
