    Default Another day and another fault! .....

    Recently my car has decided to mis - fire and go into limp home mode, with the spanner light coming on briefly and the engine light staying on, its starting to get worse now so i have plugged my scanner in and the following code comes on...

    P0353 Ignition coil c Primary/secondary circuit.

    Im thinking i need a new coil pack? and is it wise to do the spark plugs too?, as they havnt been changed for a while, thanks .

    on the 1.8 the spark plugs should get changed around 80000 miles

    i changed mine at 60000 miles
