09 Kia Ceed 1.4 petrol.
Engine misfiring and engine light sometimes always on but most time blinking.
Have changed plugs (which were knackered) but no joy.
My OBD using Torque showing cylinder 4 misfire. Coil pack maybe?
Anyone any ideas please. Greatly appreciated.

Coil pack sounds favourite - could also be an injector I guess. Unless you can lay your hands on one cheap it might be worthwhile to take it to an automotive electrician for diagnosis.

Thanks Turnup.
Will have a look around and see if I can get one fairly cheap and give it a whirl as I'm pretty convinced that's the problem.

I know it's not a Kia, but my wife's S**troen C4 had problems with cutting out, and broke down. The AA man put his code reader on it, read misfires, and fitted a new coil pack. The car was "miraculously cured".Next day it messed about again, and the problem was properly diagnosed as a faulty fusebox, with a poor connection delivering low voltage to the coil pack. It's worth checking everything, though if only one cylinder is misfiring, I tend to agree with Turnup

Harley.
As you have changed the spark plugs it's worth switching coil pack over, not sure if you have 1 for each spark plug on 2 pairs? Trace where you plug leads go to as this will confirm.
Keep updated and ask again of need any help.
