Yes and no...depends on how cracked the rubber is. Just trying to toss out things that wont trip codes. Go to an autoparts store and have it tested even if the lights off...might have a code hidden in the live memory. Other then that the next part id swap out would be the coil
Stick with oem quality here for best results (msd is ok as well)

Make sure all the leads are connected properly on the coil pack, make sure the wires arent crossed.

Re: 04 V6 rumbler

Installing an Excel ignition coil made my car drive through an earthquake. If the ignition coil ends up being the culprit, I have had great success with Screamin demon coil and Granatelli wires for years now, matched with Autolite copper core plugs.
