    Coil Pack Failure

    My 2.0FSi conked out on Sunday evening - erratic idling, misfiring and vibrated like a tractor.....54-Reg and 10k miles on clock.

    Coil pack on cyclinder 1 was faulty but Audi replaced all 4 without a fight, which I thought was unusual....

    Same for me on my last A3 1.8T Sport back in 2004. I was away for a long weekend in Somerset. Audi Technician arrived at 8.00 on a Monday morning in his trusty A6 Allroad and plugged in his laptop. Yes coilpack on one cylinder - promptly changed all four. No further problems before I traded it in 5 months later.

    The coil pack on our Altea 2.0FSi Sport packed up 10 minutes after we picked it up from the dealers for the first time. Was replaced without question, just had to wait a couple of days for them to get the part in. Later we had a problem with similar symptoms, but this turned out to be caused by damp. Dealer removed the leads, dried and replaced them and then sealed around the connections with silicone. No problems since. I've heard of this happening on a few FSi engines, both Seat and Audi.

    Now that sounds worrying!

    Surely, after all the problems with coil packs that VW/AUDI/SEAT/SKODA had previously on 1.8T's, they should have "designed" these problems out! I just cannot believe it!! Call themselves engineers!

    Audi replaced faulty coil packs on my 8L S3 which was well out of waranty. No questions asked. It is interesting to hear than this fault still exists on the 8P model. Strange....
