    Default Replacing Ignition Coilpack - What else?

    Hi All,

    I've had problems with my Vectra C Z16XEP for a couple of weeks now, brought it in and the fault read that the coil pack needs replacing. Just wondering, should I replace spark plugs etc while I'm at it? Anything else I should look out for?

    Cheers!

    I would change the spark plugs first before trying the coil pack tbh.

    Thanks folks, I'm gonna go ahead and order the coil pack and spark plugs, is it worth getting the ngk's or are they all the same?
