So I had my car running 2 cylinders because a coil pack had died I just got a new coil pack (both of them) and it was running great for about 10 mins now it's doing the same running on 2 cylinders, what could be causing it?
I can add any more information that's needed
It has 220xxx kms it's the awd version

The first thing that comes to mind is make sure the connector for the coil pack is connected securely. Check and make sure the plug wires are ok and not arc'ing off anything in the engine bay. It sounds like after it runs and gets warm, the problem occurs. Check and test the cam position sensor and crank position sensor when warm...could be one of these sensors on their way out and when they get warm, they start to fail.

Make sure you don't have a hot wire going to the coils that's gotten grounded. Be sure coil packs themselves Are grounded to block.
