You may have a coil pack going bad. They're on the front top of the engine - you'll see them if you follow the spark plug wires back. Do you have any codes from having the engine scanned? If you can get it scanned (AutoZone will do it free), post the codes up and we'll see which cylinder(s) are misfiring. From there, you can swap coilpacks around and see whether the misfires follow the packs or stay in the original cylinders. If they move, you have a bad coil pack or two. If they don't, since you've already changed plugs and wires, I'd see about having the injectors diagnosed to see if any of them are failing.

SOURCE: 98 vw beetle misfiring after rain. New plugs, coil cas cracks????

Yes, this will allow for the energy being generated to the plugs to release onto anything close enough to give it a ground. I found a website that said to remove it and coat it with liquid steel 2 part epoxy. I did that on m y '98 Beetle and worked very well for about another year. These coil packs are a POS and VW knows it, but will do nothing to resolve the issue. I did see where they recalled all 2001 & 2002 VW's to replace them, but did nothing to acknowledge the previous years, which are of the same caliber.

Hi, Yes it certainly could be especially if water gets in. You should also check the distributor cap. The misfire sounds like an arcing problem so it would have to be one of those two things since you changed the rest. Good Luck!

I have a vw beetle 1600 which backfired .I replaced all plugs and she started now refuses to start .


i have owned three.. worked on heaps

probably your plug leads in wrong order

1972 VW 1600 cc is: 1 - 4 - 3 - 2

the plug leads can break or pull off at plug ends or breakdown internally during a plug change

if not ,,a coil ,,,or points gap ,or dissy cap .dissy .carbon tip or leads arcing

very rarely any fuel problems
a good jetted webber carby fixes that

if no better ......motor may have burnt a valve

My fiat polio jurkes when it is running


Possible misfire on the spark plug or coil pack, if left and not repaired they can sometimes damage the ecu's. Reomve the plug leads from the coil pack side, one at a time and start the engine the spsrk from the plug should be strong enough to jump across to earth out, if not try a good quality coil pack. Goodluck

Ford Puma 1.7. Misfire


Old School...
If the engine is misfiring then the cylinder doing the misfire if irt is only one that is will be easy to read...
As you pull each plug examine it. compare them to eachouter as you do this...
The plug that skips will be wet or more blackened from carbon build up.
Now you know with one. First check toat plug wire and also examine the supressor, that is the part that keeps the wire connection to the plug. Look under the garmets or the rubber insultors on this unit. see if ther is any pothole burn marks. These thing should be part of the ignition wire when you changed the set. Another is to check the compression. With the gauge connection replacing the sparkplug ...At full trottle crank the engine using the ignition key sound like about 4 times.
The gauge should read over 110 if this number is less reset the gauge and do it again a couple of times to make sure. Now doing it over and over still gets you a lower reading then that cylinder piston or valves is not sealing properly letting air escape on the compression stroke reducing the combustion ration and getting a bad burn making the engine skip. I had this happen to me and all it was was a bad suppressor a new, wire set worked.

My 2 litre petrol beetle has developed a random misfire on cylinder 4. We have replaced the HT lead and spark plug but the problem persists. what else could be causing it?


its only an idea but the engine management on the early beetles was a bit primative if your confident swap the injectors over from nos 1-4 and then see if the random missfire moves from cylinders 4 to 1 if it does then you have an injector fault if not let me know as i am a vw master -tech hope this helps
as far as jennablackies fault goes it could be as simple as damaged plug leads which would cause a missfire have you got any fault codes because its obviously nothing to do with cat/lamda probes
