      Pull 'em and look.
      Also, check for bad wires & a cracked coilpack.
      Confused? Search for "coilpack" and bad wires.
      No more VW

      I've been having a misfire issue as well. My VR6 is stock. Had a bad coil pack replaced about 2k miles ago and just replaced a faulty ground wire. But I'm still having misfire / loss of power below 3k rpm.
      My pal thinks I should get the O2 sensor replaced (58,000 right now). I even tried a couple doses of fuel injector cleaner for a cheap fix, but no good.
      Anyone think I still have wiring problems?
