    Coilpack Cost?

    OK. Car came up with an engine managment light on friday, struggles to get up to 40mph, sounds like the car is mis-firing. RAC, myself and a mechanic friend have decided it sounds like a coilpack fault. (I am going to get this clarified 2morow) So.... if it is, how much will a coilpack cost me approximately? I will fit it myself, excluding labour costs would be good please. Any ideas?

    Engine - 1.6 16V on a T Plate

    Thanks

    I had one go on my Veccy V6 a few years back and it was £260 iirc :shock:

    Yours would be cheaper anyway being 4 cylinders

    Ok lads, thanks for the replies. Tech2 confirmed Pod one was breaking down on the coilpack. Went to vauxhall and new coilpack was £126, bought and fitted myself, no probs. Seesm ok now. She is due for 2004 ECU upgrade next week so will see how it fairs then as well. Thanks for all the help, appreciated as always
