replaced this coil as a precaution during a tune up since the old one had an unknown number of miles and years on it one month and two weeks later it failed while driving and left me stranded many miles from home -- one large tow bill later -- got home and swapped it out with the old one while trouble shooting the problem. The old AC delco unit worked great. Cant believe something as common as a coil could be so un-reliable. Its not like its new technology or something. Even if I get a replacement I will not trust it agian I will run the old unit till it fails and use the new one as a backup.

        good part at good price, works great went right on . I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. the only thing that made it at all difficult was my coil was the original and I had to remove the entire bracket to drill out the rivets they use at the factory to install. Engine runs smoother now and fast starts.

                could not justify spending more money on a coil. AC Delco was too much for a simple coil.
                BWD was exact match. Fit and function are spot on.

                        Find a spark plug wire, and follow it from the plugs back to the coil. Each coil controls 2 plugs. If you have a 4 cylinder, there is 2 coils. If you have a 6 cylinder, there is 3 coils.

                        A:

                        Check for spark by grounding the threads of a spark plug to the block right. If it's not sparking, start with your engine ground. It may be loose, corroded, or missing.

                        A:

                        An ignition coil that is completely dead will prevent the engine from starting or will stop the engine if the car is running at the time of failure. This is because no current will reach the spark plugs. An ignition coil that is failing will still provide current to the plugs, but it might not be enough for a full spark and the car will run sluggishly. If the current being provided by the coil isn't consistent, the car will run rough.

                        yes and check plugs for fouling that causes higher resistance. Spark looks for easy path to ground. spray a light mist of water onto coil and ignition wires at night to check for stray sparks
