    turbo coil pack same as standard?

    Basically my 2901 astra coupe turbo started to miss on idle but drives fine. can smell extra fuel occasionally, so i'm thinking coil pack (as i already changed sparks). The problem is i have been qouted £111.00 for a new coil pack. so i'm thinking scrap yard job.

    So are the coil packs for the astra 2.0l turbo same as standard ones, even 1.6 and 1.8? i have been told they are.

    no there not the same m8, normaly the coil pack breaks down under load so wouldnt think that was your problem. what spark pluggs you put in

    Check your hoses first incase they have a hole in them, i had this problem for ages, changed coilpack etc still idled poorly jumping up and down now and again.Had my idle valve cleaned and found out i had a burst hose waiting for the hose to arrive so that should be it solved.

    It started before the spark, and the new sparks are the same as old. I had a feeling it wasn't the coil pack. Where's the best place to look for leaks?
