  4. Check for dirt, corrosion or damage on the terminals and repair as necessary.

Removal & Installation



  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the electrical harness from the coil pack.
  3. Label and remove the spark plug wires from the ignition coil terminal towers. To remove the wires, squeeze the locking tabs to release the coil boot retainers.
  4. Remove the coil pack mounting screws and remove the coil pack.

To install:
  1. Install the coil pack and the retaining screws. Tighten the retaining screws to 44-61 inch lbs. (5-7 Nm).
    NOTE
    Lubricate the terminals with dielectric compound prior to installing the spark plug wires.
  2. Connect the spark plug wires and electrical harness to the coil pack.
  3. Connect the negative battery cable.

Testing



  1. Measure coil primary resistance between ignition coil pin 4 (B+) and pins 1 (coil 2), 2 (coil 3) and 3 (coil 1).
  2. Resistance should be 0.3-1.0 ohms.

    Pin 3 (coil 1)-spark plugs 1 and 5
    Pin 2 (coil 3)-spark plugs 2 and 6
    Pin 1 (coil 2)-spark plugs 3 and 4
  4. Resistance should be 12.8-13.1 kilohms.
  5. If either primary or secondary resistance is not within specification, the coil may be faulty.

This details will help.
