Hi there everyone,

I have connected my vagcom onto my car and it comes up with

two faults.

1) Coolant Temperature sensor - which I have bought and am about to

change.

2) Random Mutiple Cylinder misfire - I think it might be the nice and cheap coil pack ? Anyone got any ideas or have similar problems

Hope someone can help ?

Regards Baz.

Ok sorry but back up a second. You have a supercharged V6 4Motion? And you live in Wimborne, which is just around the corner from me? I MUST SEE THIS CAR! Oh and 2) does indeed sound like a coilpack, is it running rough?

bazp - seems like you have a few new friends now if you have this supercharged 4Mo [;)]

Would love to know all about it like when did you get it done, who by, how much, what does it drive like day-2-day, running costs etc...

BTW - welcome to the ever growing 4Mo club [:)]

260 to 290bhp I reckon...!

It could well be a coil pack by the error you've given... BUT! (and it's a big but!) Have you had your car chipped? I know the ECU should figure out it's getting more air but if your car hasn't been mapped to take advantage of the blower, then this could be the cause - and it could be anything from timing to fuel/air mix.

Other things you could try... Clean your MAF, make sure enough fuel is getting through now you've got a blower on...

Is it drinking fuel more than it did before? And like the guys say, does it feel lumpy?

DAMN DAMN DAMN I wanted the first supercharged 4mot on here !! seriously where did you get it supercharged?

The random misfire may not be the coilpack (get the serial number of the top to find out if it ispart of the faulty batch) as I know of a few people whom have had faulty ignition leads on these motors!

I think that's the one that's on Autotrader at the moment, it's an ABT conversion according to the advert.

Hi there Everyone,

I got my Supercharged v6 4motion problems sorted out by Autotechnics in Southampton. They were excellent. Turns out the Cone filter is at the bottom of the car and its sucking in water which got to the Mass Air Flow Sensor and trashed it, also some wires had rubbed through probably summit 2 do with the installation. But its now sorted and just needs the belt changing and its back to 315 bhp approx. Hoooray !

yove been in it mike?

Yup [:D]

whats it like?

Good. It was misfiring occasionally when we went for a ride, but when it was on song it was as if the whole power curve has just been shifted up slightly. I was a passenger of course, but it wasn't extreme in any way - just felt like a normal V6 but, faster. If you didn't already have a 4Mo, you would think it was just a bloody quick stock car.

whos coversion is it?

I think its an ABT but not sure... Barry? He bought the car with it fitted though.

hows it compare with an R?

Again only a passenger, but I would say it outperforms the stock R, abot up to the stage of Roysters which I think is 270BHP? But then it is super charged, so you would expect that. If its now going to be at 315BHP and all fixed, Id like another go!
