Question code p0301 pending ...whats it mean?

Hi all
Just changed the sparkplugs - then drove about 100 metres when the cel came on. Took the wheel back off then checked the coil connection on cylinder 1. Cleared the fault turned ignition on for 90 sec then off for 10.
Drove off again then got a po301 pending.....Any ideas whats up

It sounds like either a cracked coil pack or pack not fitted correctly on the number one cylinder.

in all likelihood, you didn't snap the electrical connector fully into the coil pack. otherwise, if it's a faulty coil pack, you could switch the #1 coil pack w/one of the other packs to see if the misfire follows the suspected bad coil pack...
