I have been too busy to fix the misfire which I believe is a coil pack,have a spare waiting to fit.
Will post photo of exhaust manifolds I anyone is interested.

Merry Xmas.

Yea, that's interesting. You'd think they would have handled that better in the software.

BTW, I had misfire codes last week after inadvertently disconnecting a hose on the CCV. So a vacuum leak can cause a misfire. And vacuum leaks are common. Of course, a bad coil can, too.

pshovest is writing about misfire with fuel shutoff. I think the DME shuts off the fuel in cases of sonsistent misfire to prevent unburned fuel from overloading the catalyst.
