    Exclamation How to Test a CoilPack

    Hi Guys,

    I've replaced my coilpack due to a misfire but am now have a misfire on another cylider (not the previous one).

    My question is, how can you test the coilpack (with a multimeter, resistance?) to find out whether it is faulty??

    What do the 6 pins in the connector do, specifically?

    Someone has quoted £15 to test it for me .... surely I can do this myself?

    Car is a 1.6 16V SXI 2001

    Thanks,

    J

    Electrical stuff can break down under load so it would be quite hard to tesst under load.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...
