Let's talk Coil on Plugs

Well one my Coils crapped out P0358. I was just going to replace that one for the time being with a n oem motorcraft. As some of you know the oems are pretty expensive. Has anyone else tried a different brand with success?

I looked at the Accel coils and they are just under 200 for all 8.

Heck there are some as low as 14 bucks for a single one on amazon with great reviews.

So what are you using currently or what are you planning on getting for replacements?

I replaced all 8 of mine with the motorcraft coils. I got them for 352.00 on rockauto.com That was the best price I could find on motorcraft.

That's the way to do it. I just got home and on my porch were two giant boxes from Rockauto with my new Motorcraft coils and a whole bunch of other goodies. I'm so happy. It's like Christmas. Only I had to pay for it all.

Hi guys hey I wondering when a coil is bad how does the car act? I am having a problem when I wash my car or it gets damp it like bogs down and loses power then as soon as it warms up its fine. Does that sound like coil problem ?

Usually, a bad coil will cause a misfire at idle (like mine is doing) and escalate from there to a complete failure, I suppose. Not sure about your moisture problem. Maybe open the hood when you're finished washing and try to find out if anything is getting wet.

More then likely a coil. I say next time it happens scan it and find out. Autozone does it for free if you don't have anything to pull a code with

Hopefully OEM and hopefully from Rockauto and hopefully the correct ones for the 2V. DG508 is the 2V motorcraft part number.

Ive used many aftermarket ones. Just don't buy the cheapest quality ones out there. The accel ones aren't that good. You can actually take them apart and see they aren't quality.

Even the Accel ones die way before the OEM COP's. OEM is well worth the money.

You'd think MSD and Accel would have it down pat given their history, but I wouldn't buy their COP's if I'm paying with my money. Different story if its not COP's.

MSD is junk. Ever see the inside of one of their ignition boxes? Looks like it was assembled by a 6 yr old with a hot glue gun.

Probably was somewhere in China...

I use a little dielectric grease in my boots so it gets a good connection to the plug.

This is good practice whenever you do the plugs regardless whether its a COP or a wire boot.
