    rolleyes vectra misfire

    Hi. Son,s car vectra B 1.6 16 valve 2001 has misfire at low revs and error code po353 shown. This says Ignition coil c primary/secondary circuit malfunction. Plugs were filthy and we have changed them. Code deleted but returns.
    Can anyone help.? Is it likely that a new coil pack would solve this problem. Son is skint so do not want to go to garage. I would welcome any useful ideas. Thanks, Ian.

    Vehicle : Vectra Estate

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 3.2 V6

    Year : 04

    Mileage : 000

    Sounds like the coil pack. It happened to our "old" Vectra B. They use whar is called a wasted spark. What that means is they fire twice. Once to ignite the fuel then on the exhaust stroke they fire again to burn off any un burnt fuel. On ours two plugs lost their "spark". Was a bit of a pig to "limp" the car two miles home. New coil pack sorted it though.
