    My peugeot 206 (year 2000, petrol model) has developed a misfire. i was
    driving along fine one minute then it started to misfire.

    symptons: lack of power, poor idling and misfiring (sounds like fuel is
    igniting in the exhaust pipe but not loudly back firing out of the exhaust
    pipe)

    I have re-newed the plugs, checked the valve clearances, compression
    tested the cylinders, checked that all the plugs are sparking.

    Is there anything else i can check to rectify this problem before
    reluctantly taking it to a garage?

    Thx in advance

    Try replacing the coilpack, it's a nasty one, its tendency to breakdown
    at about 70-80.000 km is well-known, the ugly part is that it usually
    fails only when hot, so when you test it out of the engine it seems
    perfect.

    Maybe you can try with a coilpack from a wrecked 206...

  3. Or just re-seat the coilpack - my 206 (at 130,000 km) suddenly
    deveoped similar symptoms and the mechanic "fiddled" and re-
    seated the coilpack (I don't know what exactly he did, I gave up
    fiddling with my cars when chewing gum and fencing wire no
    longer cured problems) and exit problem, still OK after 10,000
    km.

    you were all spot on - it was the coil pack.
