      Comments about BWD Ignition Coil:

      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 BWD Ignition Coil:

        This was very east to do and while your there you should replace the spark plugs I used the stock Professional Iridium Spark Plug by ACDelco and since the best way to replace these is to take the 4 bolts out of the throttle body off you should take the time to clean that too.

              Excellent coils, although one was defective. AAP stood by their warranty and sent a new replacement. Easy to install and just as good as the OEM.

                      Let me start off by saying that I am not mechanically inclined. But this was one of the easiest repairs I have ever done on a vehicle! If you are in need of changing out your ignition coils and are not sure you can do it... you can! These ignition coils are great, easy to install and have greatly improved the performance of my vehicle.

                        Comments about BWD Ignition Coil:

                        The vehicle was not running well. The people in the store helped me determine that it was either the spark plug or the ignition coil.

                        I changed out the spark plug and it didn't help. The next day, I ordered the igition coil online to receive a good discount and picked up the part in the store. This part solved the problem.

                        I have little experience working on cars and a very poor selection of tools. This job was one of the easiest jobs I have had to do so far. The hardest part was removing all of the parts to get to the coil. Even that wasn't very difficult.

                        The team helped me diagnose the problem and I ordered online for a discount and a simple transaction. Thank you Advance.

                            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.

                              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.

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.

                              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.

                              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.
