Hi Volvo people. My brother just purchased a 2000 Volvo V70 and it has a misfire on cylinder 2. The indy shop said it was coil pack related and wants to replace all 5 coil packs plus plugs. I own a 05 Audi A4 and have changed coil packs and plugs myself numerous times so i know how easy the install can be and how much coil packs can be a pain in the ****. My question is do most Volvo guys run only OEM coil packs or is non oem ok? The stealership quoted $96 a coil vs. $30 online. If non-oem is ok i can throw these in with new plugs for him and save a few hundred bucks but coming from the Audi side i know nothing about Volvo. Thanks!

If only #2 has a mis-fire, what's the rational for replacing all 5 coil packs ?

My experience is that some Coil Packs live 80,000 miles; and others 165,000. Right now, I have three (3) in my car which have lasted over 222,000 and while I have OEM replacements in waiting, they're not going in until someone screws up.

I don't replace anything just for the fun of it.
