Amazing, Ignition Coils Do Go Bad

Last night I checked for spark from my Accel Coil and there was non whatsoever. I'd been having starting probs lately and thought it was a fuel prob. I guess the car got flooded when the mixture didn't get ignited. Well, I bought and installed an MSD Blaster Coil, and she started right up. I didn't think a piece of steel and epoxy could go bad. Hope this helps someone out.

I told ya so :p . Glad to hear you got it fixed . The coil is actually more than a chunk of steel and some epoxy . There is a coil winding inside , thats why they call it a coil . if the winding breaks then thats when they go bad .


Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience...
