If just one of the inner coils fails the effect is poor acceleration, but if more that one fails or an outer cylinder if affected then you will know by the juddering of the whole vehicle.....
Thanks V-max

the symptoms you describe, I'm getting all of them.

Lumpy idle, feels like going to stall, lack of power and whole car judders while doing about 40mph, and Eng diag ligh ton constant.

it in the dealers today, so we'll see
