    Can anyone point me in the right direction to source a Bosch coil pack? I have just called Vauxhall and they’re asking for £360?? Euro car parts only stock HAAS and HELLA and the eBay sellers only have 5 reviews each with ‘suspiciously 5 star reviews... Even halford only sell HAAS and HELLA, does it really have to be Bosch?

    Thank you. I also found that Cortney Sport sell them for £102 but I will go the eBay route. I used the discount code for Euro yesterday to get my spark plugs, saved a lot of money! Almost slashed the price in half!!

    I don’t know how Vauxhall can get away with charging £360!!

    Try changing the front bcs with a new one, then try maf and map sensors

    I'd prioritise maf over the rest first mate. Try swapping with someone who you know has a good one and see if it makes a difference. Then you don't waste money on a new one and have it not turn out to be the culprit.

    Changed the plugs today and there was oil on the top part of 2 of the plugs but the bottoms were dry and fine, no sign of any fuelling issues. New plugs have made no difference and the car still wonít rev above 4K. Error codes point towards misfire on Cylinder 4.

    I was woundering if it is simply a faulty coil pack and also the rocker gasket leaking?

    Thanks in advance.

    Oh I also used stock plugs as this is what the car was mapped to.
    My corsa was doing this and I spent a fortune on genuine plugs, I was using Beru and bloody good plugs too, anyway wasnít the plugs, got new coilpackwasnt that, MAF wasnít that, replaced all pipes, same did a 9 hour round trip to Rabbid and it was a faulty map by the previous company, he loaded std map on and ran great then did full stage 3 for me with injectors replaced and car is amazing so a cheap day as I was expecting engine rebuild
    You could have a corrupt parameter or something in the map
    5 minutes on a dynotech should show if map fault worth doing before spending hundreds like I did
