I take it you have checked out the wiring harness going to the the ECU - a fairly common problem from what I have gathered

Thanks for the reply.
I havent checked out the wiring loom to the ECU could one of the wires be broken? My symptoms are that the engine is only running on three cylinders. Changed coil packs and leads but no difference. there is a spark on the dodgy cylinder but its weak and yellow so I thought it was the coil pack, doh!

Is it more common for the wires to fail or the ECU ?
many thanks
