Coil pack? Maybe?! Grrrr...

My 02' 147 was parked for a few weeks over Xmas and into the new year. Started using it again 2/3 weeks ago and it seemed a bit juddery first thing in the morning (when cold) but seemed fine when warmed up. Also judders a bit when pootling at under 2000rpm (but not all the time)

Then week and half ago the MCFN popped up one morning whilst is was having a stutter. I pulled up, waited a moment, switched on and off and was fine.

Did it a couple more times over the next few days, but then went off again Wednesday night. Didn't reoccur til yesterday.

I've not got a code reader but looking at the various posts on here its pointing me to the coil pack- what do you reckon?

You will need to get the codes read or you could be throwing away money guessing. You can get Bluetooth ones that work with a smartphone app such as torque for 6 ish

unplug and reconnect the coil packs, then see how it goes.
