You say coil packs rather than coil PACK because not all are COP [coil on plug ] the 1.2 8v and 16v engine do misfire if the valve clearances are not done under routine maintenance. Now 675,000 is a lot of miles so I guess thats a typo. If you have a 1.2 then get the valve clearances checked otherwise you could end up with burnt valves. To check if you have a leaking valve get a compression test done.
