The car was misfiring badly and when hooked up to the VAG COM read multiple random misfires and cyl 6 misfire. I bought a Huac coilpack replacement and installed it. The car started after a little hesitation and ran for a day without any problems. Also after installing the new coil pack it threw a check engine light and gave some random codes saying some of the coil voltages were too low but it still ran just fine. Now the car wont start and when scanned came back with these codes.

I reinstalled the old coilpack and it started right up with the exception of the misfire.

Any ideas? Does something need to be reset when changing a coilpack?

Thanks in advance!

No kind of reset required after coil replacement. How are the wires..? See alot of people overlooking wires and throwing coils in first.... If you can, remove the engine covers to allow for extra slack in the plug wires. Then try swapping plug wires of similar length to see if the misfire follows suit.

That being said, I would look at the possible cause of all those injector faults. Ignition may not be the actual problem. Not likely that more than one injector has crapped out, so I'd check out the wiring harness. You may need to break out the Bentley if you don't find anything obvious.

Thanks for the advice. The strange thing is when the new pack worked for the day it had no misfires. That makes me think that its not wires or injectors. I just dont understand why it would work for a day then not start until the old pack was reinstalled. It may be a loose harness to make all of those systems fail the same way but when the old pack was installed everything worked fine again.

Im kinda at a loss on what to really try next other than getting a different coil pack?

Thats a good point, ill try that. But the strange thing is this problem happened once before in the exact same way. The way i got it to run was to fix the old coilpack with epoxy but its too far gone now.
