    hi all, in a previous thread a stated i had an engine problem, we all gathered it was a coil pack problem.

    sadly, because it's so cold out, the car wont start with only 2/3 cylinders firing (if that is the actual problem)

    can anyone assist me with either a set of coil packs for testing, or vagcom?

    i'm not expecting anyone to do it for free

    i'm also guessing its the coil packs, but guessing is not worth spending £150 on parts that can not be returned lol

    coil packs are useful spare parts to have in the car nonetheless

    i'll go down the route of "if one is broke, change them all" and use the old ones as spares
