Customer Question

Customer: Hi there David, I have a similar problem to the one stated here but my code tells me that my cylinder 2 has a misfire. However, this is a recent sporadic issue and I have changed my spark plugs which did not solve the issue.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I had a coolant leak fixed recently and thats when the problem started.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to VW Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: Sure
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

What year, model, and engine do you have?

Is it misfiring all the time, or just at idle? If you have a 2.0 from 99-03 then check your vacuum line to the fuel pressure regulator from the intake just above cylinder 2.
