Topic - HELP Car trouble, coil packs

Cameron94 on 07 Jun 2014
One of the coil packs on my car has gone and it's causing one of my cylinders to misfire. This results in the car having a judder, engine rock, and louder exhaust noise.
The biggest issue is the loss of power when putting my foot down (in any gear), it's not always showing an emission control system warning lanp.



If I could get hold of a new coil pack i could fit it myself however I'm due to be in the Cairgorms for several days so I can't get the bits until I'm back.

My questions are; Am I doing the car any harm by driving it or is it just going to result in poor fuel consumption and loss of power?
Would a 120mile drive (split over a few days) be too much for it?


A few car details;

VW Golf FSI
Petrol 1.6, 115 bhp
4 cylinder
