    Hi, Just a quick one, VAG Com is showing misfire on cylinder 2. Coilpacks?!

    Are they 1-4 left to right standing in front of the engine?

    Thanks!

    Chris.

    no idea

    id swap the fisrt two coil packs around , working from the left and see if fault moves.

    as cyl 3 and 4 working Left to Right involve more work to get at.

    if it moves, you found fault.

    if it doesnt, you have either...

    got wrong one.
    got problem with wiring to coil pack

    or

    got a problem with a spark plug.
