Modus 1.4 "Check emissions" - coil change didnt help

Hello

Check emissions light came up, exhuast smelled like petrol and engine jerking, googled it and fault coil pack was a common fault. Changed them all and put in new spark plugs at the same time. Car then worked all fine a few days before Check emissions light reappeared and started going poor again.

What is the next step, try to read out the error codes or maybe check the lambda sensor? Is it hard to replace yourself.

Thanks for every advice, feel stuck at this problem.

Try removing the spark plugs and check their colour - are they all of similar colour.

Hello again.

Problem is now solved: one of the new coils was faulty, replaced it and car again works. Checked the spark plugs and they seemed fine.

Thank you and hopefully the rest of the new coils work longer than a few days
