My astra 2004 1.4 has a intermittent misfire, in cylinder 1. Its a lot worse when first starting when going up hill underload. The eml will start to flash and the car sometimes cuts out, when turning the engine on its sometimes a bit slow to start like the battery is a bit flat. Once the car's going it drives fine. i have changed the coil pack and plugs and put injector cleaner through it, it worked for a while then came back again. Any idea's????

You need to establish whats causing the missfire, a code read should point in the right direction, with a look at the live data

Thanks for that but the egr is banked off, and the only code that comes up is 0301, which is cylinder 1 misfire, but it doesnt tell you what is causing the misfire. any more help would be much appreciated.
