Volvo Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
My name is ***** ***** I am a Volvo dealership technician. I am going to try to help with your questions tonight. First, if you only drove it briefly to get home, you didn't cause any further damage. If a car is driven with a misfire for extended periods of time, it can damage the catalytic converter. The part numbers are different because the number has changed over the years. This is very common for any part. You have the correct coil. If the code has returned and the coil is firing, there is another cause for the misfire- likely mechanical. A compression test and cylinder leakage test should be performed on the engine to check the integrity of the combustion chamber for each cylinder.
Let me know if you have any other questions.

Please remember to select a rating at the top of your screen for my service so that I may be credited for helping. It does not close the question and you can follow up at any time. Thank you.
Glad you found it. Let me know if you need anything else. Please remember to select a rating when you're all set. Thank you.
So I do not deserve to be credited because I assumed that you did not break a spark plug when replacing them and assumed you would have seen exposed wiring when doing them? I answered four questions and the answers would have led to finding the spark plug when you removed them for a compression test. Thanks a lot, happy holidays.
No problem, I saw the refund had been processed before I posted, which means a rating was not possible.
