    Question Does this sound like a coilpack problem?

    Hi,

    Tried getting a fault read out from my 97 a3 and for some reason it refuses to connect or is incompatible with OBD2 for some reason, so im playing a guessing game at the moment with an ongoing issue im having...

    The car is lumpy at idle and, although it's not always noticeable, a slight dip in power can be felt when accelerating at high speeds. It's most noticeable when the car is starting, it'll sometimes take 2 goes to get it started. It doesnt come and go, a misfire is always there come rain or shine...

    My mate suggested it may be a coilpack problem (coolant temp sensor, ht leads and spark plugs all being replaced previously in vain to try and sort it out), just wanted a few more opinions before I go chucking any more money at it.

    Does this sound like a coilpack problem to anybody else or is it something else? Any replys are greatly appreciated as im at the end of my tether lol

    Cheers

    I think you need to run a proper vagcom scan before starting to buy any new items and replacing everything
    ^^ In my opinion
