Hi

How can you condemn the coil without taking an amps trace ?

What you are seeing could be plugs/leads.The spark line on the brown trace appears to be sloping upwards which could indicate a lean mixture.

Is this a random misfire or cyl specific ?

Take a primary,current ramp & secondary trace from the affected cyl/s with more time on the screen & at idle & snap throttle & possibly post the PSD file,you are also probably better off posting on a car forum.

thank for your advice robskie i will try a current trace.the plugs and leads are new when you drive the car it has a single cylinder intermitant miss under load.i was condeming the coil on the road test results and did not understand the traces i got when compared to pico examples.thank you for your replie.
