    just googled it and it seems coilpack is a common problem. Could this be right? come to think of it i do remember something being said about a misfire.

    Just did the pedal test again and came up with
    0300-misfire unidentified cylinder detected b-21
    0301-cylinder 1 misfire detected b-22
    0400-EGR malfunction

    Anyone with any ideas please post. Thanks

    if your egr is blanked its gota be coilpack get the car up to 30 in 4th gear and floor it if it spluter and starts to die its gonna have to be replaced.

    If the EGR is blanked but still attached it will still cause the error code to flag up if it sticks as the ECU is still controlling it.

    Coilpack seems common to fail.
