I take it that you checked the compresssion on all 8 cylinders ??? My 93 MK 8 (195,000 miles ) had a miss for awhile,towed with it & ran it awhile. Checked wires,coils,injectors,intake manifold,plugs ,etc. STILL missed. Finally checked compression,NO complession on #4 cylinder !!! Thought maybe it was a collapsed lifter,BUT on closer check i found that the bottom of one exhaust valve spring was BROKEN !! FINALLY,runs smooth NOW !!! Jim
