MY2000 C2 Tiptronic Cabriolet, stock intake, around 70k miles.
I changed out the coolant tank about two weeks ago. During the tank install, I broke the oil filler tube. I wrapped it tightly with Gorilla tape as a few people had mentioned that as a temporary fix. I've driven the car about 250 miles since then with no issues. I detect a bit of gasoline smell in the exhaust but I'm not sure if it's my imagination since I had to disconnect the fuel lines during the tank R&R and I'm a bit paranoid after I work on my car. There are no black deposits on or near the tailpipes. Yesterday I was driving and was very low on fuel. I noticed a slight shudder every 15 or 20 seconds while I was idling at a traffic light. I filled it up as I thought maybe that was causing the shudder.
When I got home, I cleaned the MAF with MAF Cleaner. I started the car briefly and it seemed fine.
Today I pulled the car out and it was running rough immediately . Within about a minute I got a CEL P0301 - Cylinder 1 Misfire. It didn't rain yesterday but the humidity was close to 90%
I had changed out the spark plugs about 20,000 miles ago but didn't replace the coils at that time, which I assume were original. I just ordered new plugs and coils and will install them when they arrive.
Would a bad MAF or leaking oil filler tube trigger a misfire on just one cylinder?
I was planning on delaying the oil filler tube replacement to next year when I'll have my Indy replace the 7 year old LNE IMS and the AOS.
Is there anything I can check in the meantime?

Due to leaking I recently changed my coolant reservoir tank, which involved disconnecting and re connecting 2 fuel lines.. Upon restarting the car I had a rough idle and CEL. I purchased a $100b code reader, read a bunch of stuff online and decided to clean the MAF sensor, change the air filter, spark plugs, plug tubes and coils.
upon today's startup I get an erratic/rough/low rpm idle, flashing CEL and the following codes:
P0102 mass air flow circuit low
P1319 misfire emission related
P1318 misfire cylinder 6 emission related
P1315 misfire cylinder 3 emission related
P1313 misfire cylinder 1 emission related
Somehow I went from a leaky tank to some bad stuff based on a do-it-myself moment.
I wonder if the coil packs might not be perfectly seated?
I'm thinking a new mass air flow sensor and all four O2 sensors need replacing??
Hi Porsche people
I changed the spark plugs of my 955 CTT yesterday and I think the plug on cylinder 6 is not as the others. For me it does not show a realy scary image,
and I'm sure it is not urgent but can you see something more?

I'm having the classic misfire on cylinder 1 when the car is wet. I used contact cleaner on the ignition wire plug into the coil and it works fine for now. I/m sure when it gets rained on it will misfire again. Already replaced spark plugs. I discovered there is a tear in the little orange gasket (green arrow in photo) on the ignition wire connector and water is getting in there when it rains. Anybody know where I can find a replacement without buying a new $812 engine wiring harness?
