    Just had my 1.8t in the garage to replace the lower temp sensor. Should of done it myself.

    Well he's cleaned the throttle body aswell without him telling me but now just drove it back and the engine management light has come on and it feels like its missfiring.

    does as miss fire on a b6 throw the management light on?? Hopefully it's just that.

    never going there again.

    ill have to wait untill I'm home to use vagcom now

    change 4 to 1 gor for a drive then rescan
    see if the miss has moved to number 1
    just swap the first 1 and last 1 round

    i think so but not 100% sure
    but it wont matter as when you swap them if the miss follows you know its the coil pack
    and they do go quite offen
    i always carry a spare in the boot for that reason

    There's a recall on some VAG coilpacks. Check with your Audi dealer to see if you car is covered as they will replace all 4 coilpacks FOC if it is.

    Yes the push down coilpacks aren't covered on the VAG recall. Though they do seem to fail too.
