      my 96 golf vr6 has a cylinder 6 misfire. Reason i know is because i scan the OBD2 and the cylinder 6 misfire comes out. On the actual car its not extremely noticeable. The CEL doesn't blink, doesnt have a extreme loss of power or doesnt have a extreme bad idle. Everything is mild. At idle u can hear a putt putt every once in awhile. Ive change the spark plugs and the wires. I've went from the OEM ICM to the Ford (taurus) ICM to the Ford (mustang) ICM. yet the code still goes off. Any idle what else it might be?

      Hook a vacuum gauge up to it and see what the vacuum is at idle. Its should be higher than 25" pounds. If not, then you have a vacuum leak, either an intake gasket or a vacuum hose.
