Hey guys,
a few days ago received my Ross Tech cable, and did a Auto scan under engine. I am getting random misfire codes, see code, also getting a O2 sensor code. I just replaced the O2 sensor the right side Upstream. however I was told that that code means I need a new catalytic converter?
secondly what could be causing the random misfire? I drive car daily and the car runs very smooth,and has plenty of power, it does not feel like a random misfire on all 6 cylinders. I have had a misfire on my other car on just 1 cylinder and i felt the engine shake, and lost of power. This is not the case with my Audi. the engine does not shake, idle very smooth, and accelerates as it should .

Check your coil pack wiring harness, mine had many wires where the protective sheathing was gone and the wiring was corroded, car still ran great though

If you plan to keep the car, I would plan to replace the coil pack harness or repair it

The oxygen sensor code has to do with the heater circuit for the oxygen sensor, it has nothing to do with the cat. It is the upstream sensor on the right hand side of the engine, passenger side of the vehicle (assuming that it is LHD)
