Have any of you had problems w/ ignition coils? I have had two coils fail in 9,000 miles. Are these coils just crap or could there be something going on w/ my truck that is making them fail prematurely? Anybody know a good source for coils - I called AB Linn and he only has tiwan coils which he dose not recommend.

You may want to check other components also, cap, plugs wires.

If any of those are bad it will put more strain on the coil, May not remedy a cheaply made coil, but will help you get the most out of it.

Make sure you don't leave your on/off switch on. That will burn out coils also.

This last coil croaked while going down the expressway so it was not the on/off switch. Thank for suggestion though. I bought a replacement coil yesterday which I think may be NOS / USA (w/ external ballast resistor) from Saturn surplus - I'll know after it delivers. $48.00 plus shipping. Hopefully this one will last a while.
