Ignition coil packs???
My car is an x reg 2000 156 1.8. I went to check my spark plugs but have noticed that one of my ignition coils has corroded. I am trying to get one from a breakers or Ebay as i have been quoted £100 each. Bloody hell!!!!
I have been offered a set of four on Ebay for £35. Am i right in saying that there are different ignition coils for the different size engines? If so as long as the set have come off another 1.8 i should be okay. I am still managing to get the car started even with this corroded coil.
I don't know if this is related to the coil but every so often my car will not start. It is turning over and there is plenty of go in the battery but is just not firing. If the car has not started after around 5 seconds i turn the engine of and try it again and it always starts on the second attempt. Weather does not seem to come into it as the car can start first time on a cold morning first time. If i go to the car an hour or so later it might not start but then again it might not. Take today for instance. I have started the car 7 or 8 times today with only once it not starting first time. Does anyone think it is related to the corroded coil or does it sound like a TDC problem?
