    Default 1997 peugeot 406 2.0 petrol xu10j4r misfire

    Hi,
    I had a misfire I purchased a replacement coil assy and fitted it. It fixed it for about a week and a half.
    Now its back to misfiring.
    I have put new plugs in. I swapped plugs around.I have refitted the old "faulty" coil and it sounds no different to the new one, the misfire sounds the same.
    I removed the injector plugs one by one and its no.2 cylinder (2nd from lhs).
    I swapped around the injectors (2-4) and removed injector plugs 1 by 1 and its still missing on no. 2.

    where 2 now?
    The company I bought the coil on would like me to go to a mechanic with a scan tool and identify if there any fault codes before they proceed, which I am more than happy to do.

    But I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions about what it might be, I am assuming the coil is faulty..
    By the way, not long after the car developed with misfire with the new coil in it, I removed the plugs to check them. NO. 2 had the tip burnt off.... Hmmm not sure why...

    Any advice greatly appreciated.

    Swap the injectors between 2&3, clean the plug tips and monitor again.

    Done that, still no joy... Compression test I think next, any other thoughts?

    Still missing on 2? Could be simple as a duff lifter. Compression test is a good idea, especially wet and dry.
