    Vehicle : Mk1 renault scenic... I know I know but it drives

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.6 16v

    Year : 2003

    I'd say it's far from normal.

    What are spark plugs like?

    Would that not make sense that they go one after the other?

    The coil packs failing is quite a common problem on the 2.8T. Maybe your having a run of bad luck with them going. At least you haven't had the same one fail twice. Just out of interest where are you buying the replacement coil packs from? I hope its not VX as they can be bought for a shed load cheaper from CES UK.

    My other car. 1972 1641cc slammed beetle. On the road finally!!
