    Default Help please with the dreaded EML

    I have a 05 plate 2.2 direct with 26k on the clock. the EML has come on several times and the car misfires. If i stop, switch off and start up again straight away the misfire disappears, the EML goes out after a few starts. the Fault code shows as "misfire on cylinder1" every time.

    I have stopped using supermarket fuel and changed the plugs which seemed to cure it for a time, but it has recently started doing it again, with the same fault code. anyone have any ideas what the problem could be

    Thanks

    At a guess, maybe the coil pack. I would start there anyway
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
