It was far easier to install this ignition coil compared to removing the spark plugs. The back spark plug ceramic element busted when removing and it took me hrs to get the pieces out. Should have gone straight to the ignition coil replacement from the beginning, after I detected the misfire in one of the cylinders. I know the spark plugs are the first and cheapest to replace, but be careful with the one on the last cylinder underneath the windshield, as it is extremely hard to get to

          Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Ignition Coil:

          Had a misfire code P302. This problem came and went several times within a year. Changed plugs and insulators (needed plugs anyway). Misfire stopped for several months, then it recurred this summer consistently misfiring. Raised Coil 2 off plug while engine was running, had week spark or no spark at times. Swapped coil 3 with coil 2, problem followed coil 2. Decided it must be the coil (not intake gasket as some suggest). Replace with new premium coil problem solved. If possible I buy the best replacement part due to the fact that the cheaper replacement/rebuilt parts tend not to last as long.

            • Q:

              can I buy just one of these and not replace all the ignition coils at once? Truck currently has delphi coils in it, but the 200$ price tag on those is steep.

                Hi Brain, good question! You can replace them as they fail. No need to make a complete change if they are working properly.

              • A:

                Yes, one coil per cylinder. If one goes bad your vehicle will run with a missfire in one cylinder. You only have to replace that one. You can locate which one with an OBDII scanner. Code P0302 would mean cylinder 2. P0305 would be cylinder 5, etc.. The Advance Auto Parts store I use will scan your vehicle for free. I'm guessing they all will.

                A:

                No, the ignition coil is different from ignition control module. I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

                Yes, with reference to your inquiry on the BWD Ignition Coil - part# E255, you can very well change the spark plugs and wires without changing the ignition coils.

              • A:

                Plugs can be changed without changing the coils. Since the coil sits on top of each plug, there are no conventional spark plug wires to replace on your vehicle.

                A:

                Allow the vehicle for run for about thirty minutes and then gently rap the module with the head of a screwdriver. If the car engine dies, this is a good indicator that the ignition coil is faulty and needs to be replaced.

                Your check engine light will come on if you have a faulty coil. I'd go to Advance Auto Parts (if your check engine light is on) and ask them to check your OBDII code with a scanner. They should be able to tell you which coil(s) need replacement from the code displayed. If your check engine light is not on, I'd replace the fuel filter first because they're cheap and there's a high probability that's the problem.

                You can test resistance on ignition coils. To much resistance means it is a bad ignition coil.

                Yes you have to leave your vehicle running and pull out the connector plugs one by on if there is a change in the engine sound when disconneted it is working.If you pull the plug and there is no change then it is not working and thats the one that needs to be replaced.
