159 V6 melting ignition coils
I have a problem with 2008 159 3.2 V6, that is burning 4th cylinder coils.
Faulty coils on these engines are common problem and i have replaced many of them, but on this car its always the same coil that keeps burning.
Wiring from the coil to ecu and all earths are ok.
I have replaced spark plugs, but all the time the same coil burns.
It cant be that i have got crappy coils beacause it does not matter if it is new original coil, used original coil or replacement part from two different manufacturers.
Some times the coil lasts for a week, other times it burns after 15 minutes of driving.
I searched through this forum and found two posts where the same nr. 4 coil kept burning, one had faulty ecu and he had it repaired but i could not found what was exactly wrong in the ecu and the other one has not replyed what fixed his problem.
Does anyone else have the same kind of problem ?
