Re: [T TBS R] Ignition coils failure. . .
- Still waiting for all or you who are so knowledgeable of this "bad
batch" to produce one shred of evidence to the effect. Stop
inciting people if you have no facts please!
It could be any number of things contributing to the coil failures.
That is the problem with electrical issues - they are difficult to
pinpoint. The coil could be a symptom of another problem. What
ever happened to the overcharging alternator thread, anyway?
If it is a bad batch, they have been getting bad batches at least

power. This occurs when the engine and coils are hot. Mine always
ran well while cold, umless you have a total coil failure where
presumably the diode burns out. Then it's obvious because you will
be running on two cylinders. Easy to find which one by pulling spark

is your battery? It may not hold a charge because it's no longer any
good or your alternator isn't putting out enough voltage to charge
it. Easy to test with a multimeter.
>If so, any recommended replacements, OEM or third party?Batteries, for sure Yuasa and others. Coils, try Sprint
manufacturing for an OEM alternative.
