HI Paul

Sounds like you might be on the money with your diagnosis. The Coil Packs are known to be a weakness on the early Scoobs. Best way is to check them. You can remove each one and have a good look around the rubber boot (which plugs onto the plug) If you see any signs of cracking etc this may well be your problem. While you are there (with coil packs removed) it would be a good idea to remove the spark plugs and have a look at these aswell. Also note that a coil pack can just fail due to age etc. so if you know of someone with working c.p's then it might be worth swapping them over and see if the misfire continues ?
