    No, it didn't work, cleared the codes and started the engine. it ran a little rough and in a few seconds the CEL came on, shut down and I could smell unburned fuel. same codes came back.

    Before you change the coil.......... verify the power stage is actually switching via ECU.

    Do this with an LED tester/noid at the terminals for each respective coil.

    I've been trying to find a tester. I do have a test light but it's an old craftsman from carburetor days. So after work the last couple of days I've visited Autozone, harborfreight, advance auto, and sears hardware looking at test lights and some say "computer safe" and they're the typical probe type with clear screwdriver handle with either both neg- and pos+ or just a single lead. But they look and feel cheap. I'd just as soon buy a good tool and use it for a while.

    Question--I realize there are youtube videos on how to make your own noid light or led tester. Can you recommend a decent test light? The one in the Bentley is the VAG 1527B which is superceded by the VAS 6839, which looks just like the Fluke T150. The description of the VAG 1527B is below.

    "For locating faults in all vehicle electrical and electronic components. The use of an extremely low current (max. 1.5 mA) prevents any damage to the electronic components during the test. Conventional test lamps can cause damage to electronic components due to the high voltage required and therefore should no longer be used. "

    What do you think of these I found which are in my budget?

    I bit the bullet and bought a coil pack from AutoZone. Supposedly made for them by Wells electronics in China. They offer no questions asked returns for 30 days and lifetime replacement to the original purchaser. So it fixed the issue, my wife says it drives noticeably smoother and peppier. I wish it wasn't Chinese, but if it fails every year, I should be able to get a new one. fingers crossed.

    Thanks for your help.
