2000 GTI 1.8 liter turbo #3 coil pack swap!

Can you tell me exactly how to change out the #3 coil pack. And are the cylinders from left to right standing in front of the car 1234? The code shows # 3 misfire. Coil packs are notorious for going out. Thanks Dave

Took the information that I found on the internet and ran with it. Once I got the part I looked at the engine after taking off the plastic cover on top of the engine it was self explanatory. I took a chance on how the pstons were numbered and it was right. The car runs great!

I have problem :misfire cylinder #3 #5 about 3 years millage is 130000 ....thanks


It is possible that you may have two coil packs going bad as cylinders 3 and 5 are on different packs. To attempt to prove this without going broke, you could swap the 1/4 coil pack with one of the other two and see if the misfire changes the 1 or 4 cylinder instead. If it does, you have the issue resolved. See the diagram below for more details.

How do I fix the code p 0303 misfire number 3 cylinder


Change the coil pack from cylinder 3 to cylinder 1. If you get a code p0301 after the swap, then that coil pack is bad, replace it. If you still get a p0303, then check the wiring to coil pack 3. If you have a combination coil pack, then replace the whole unit.

Think i got a coil pack gone 2000 gti turbo how do i tell which one has gone?jon uk


you have to change it. as a pack that means all cylinders are attached if it were single it would be a single coil over the spark plug.location is to the right of the intake.might have to remove the secondary injection pump.

2001 ford 4.6 liter idles rough sometimes dies


may need 1 0r more coil packs replaced,or it could be what happened to my 2000 4.6---1 lifter expanded out and wouldnt collapse,causing the rocker arm to fall out of place and the valve could never open...try unplugging 1 coil pack at a time while running and listen for a change in the way it runs,if there isnt a change then its probably a bad coil pack,find a cylinder that runs and swap the coil packs,if no difference then its probably the valve staying shut.

Misfire on #3


Re: 2000 Volvo S40 L4 1.9 Liter L4 1.9 Liter Turbo FI

Are you consider yourself a handy person?

Swap the coil and see is the misfire going to follow to another bank of cylinder.

You has total of 3 coil in your engine.

Do a detail record map and switch the two coils.

A replacement aftermarket coil is oil $46 w/one year warranty and $55 will get you a life time warrent coil.

Do the swap and see what happen.

A leaky/failing injector can also cause the same problem.


Do a Chevron Techron fuel injector clean ran and highway ran.

Good luck
