Q: Clicking noise at low speeds on 1999 Volkswagen Jetta

When I drive my 1999 VW Jetta, with AEG engine, there seems to be a clicking noise from the engine. It sounds to me that the engine is missing on a cylinder as it only makes the noise at speeds lower than 30 mph. When I accelerate quickly or maintain a high speed the sound goes away. I have replaced and re gaped the spark plugs and replaced the wires, next for me would be the coil pack. Would this be the way to go?

The coils on these are problematic, but you should have a check engine light on, and probably flashing if a coil is bad. Is the light on?
I do not have an engine light on but I have ordered a coil pack. It is original to the car so it is amazing that it has lasted this long. Thanks. I will let you know if it works!
