Hi Gavin. Do you have any suggestions. Plugged in again and says lamba sensor fault and crank sensor fault. Would these faults make it misfire. Plugs changed 10,000 miles ago. Many thanks! Martin

Morning Gavin! I have removed the plugs and am 99% sure that it is the coil pack. Any ideas where I can get a replacement as no luck so far?! Many thanks. Martin.

Could you send me a pick as they used VAG group coil packs for a while .

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Part number 281449 thank you

That looks like a VAG group one you could try your local car parts store to match it up or ect.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Thanks so much Gavin. You have been extremely helpful and I will certainly be recommending you.

No problem if you can try to save my details as there are not many techs on here that get involved or experience on the old Massy . If you need anymore help just ask and feel free to rate me regards Gavin.
