View Thread: Coilpack Failure on VWs or Audis


Nogaro Nitwit
Who else on here has had problems with the coilpacks on their VW or Audi? Just curious since I have gone through 2 already. I now carry one, an Audi Tech friend gave to me for free, in my trunk. The last coilpack failure was a pain in teh ass. Had to leave the car in Detroit for a week while it got fixed and I had to go home. :banghead:

A coilpack helps give power to each sparkplug. There are one per cylinder. Coilpacks have been failing all over the nation. Lots of my friends locally have had at least one fail on them. They are backordered all ove the US.

Anyone who needs one, head to Stohlman VW in Tysons Corner, VA. They'll get you in and out in an afternoon! :D
