Replace them in pairs. If you replace one front, replace both. One rear, both.

Would a bad coil make it so your 1998 dodge Dakota wont start?

The coil provides the extra power needed for a good spark, without it, a weak spark may or may not ignite the fuel/air mixture. It's a good idea to replace the coil every 50,000 miles, or every time you replace the distributor cap and rotor.

How do you raise front end of a 1973 duster to make it sit level?

Replace all rubber bushings, install new shocks, replace all worn hardware (bolts, washers, etc and probably a good idea on a 30+ year old car anyway) most noticable difference will come from installing a new set of coil springs. Be careful when ordering springs, most "performance" springs will actually make the car sit lower than the factory height, thereby completly defeating the end result you desire, there should be a few places where you can still get the original factory springs or exact reproductions. Good luck!

In your opinion is it a good idea to convert the air suspension to coil springs all 4 corners if so any recommendation on which kit to use?

Can you drive a caravan with broken leaf springs?

I believe this is a trick question. I'm not familiar with a single model of Caravan, Town & Country, or Voyager that had leaf springs. They were all designed with coil spring and strut suspensions. If a Caravan had leaf springs it would be a bad idea to drive it with one broken, unless you want to scrape your undercarriage off on the road.

Can an AC coil be replaced independent of replacing the AC compressor?

Absolutely. You only need to replace the compressor if it needs replacement. Just get the system evacuated (you can have this done not only at a shop, but your local trade school or community college can do it for you, as well, and probably much cheaper), and you can replace the evaporator coil. Would be a good idea to replace the accumulator or receiver-drier (which one you have depends on whether you have a fixed orifice tube or thermal expansion valve system), as well, as they contain a desiccant which becomes saturated rather quickly once exposed to atmospheric air.

Do I need new coil springs when replacing rear struts for a 1998 Malibu?

If the back of the vehicle is sagging, yes. If not... don't mess with the springs. Many shops will try to sell you what you don't need, and that's because many mechanics don't have any idea what things do. Springs support the vehicle, shocks dampen out harmonic action of the wheels when they hit a bump. Anyone who tries to make more out of shock absorbers simply doesn't understand the physics involved.

Why do you have an occasional lack of spark in a 1997 Chrysler Sebring?

my original response to your question is below.. but it may be a spark plug, which would cost a lot less than the coil/cap combo. but its a good idea to replace coil/cap/wires every 100k miles. Your Coil/Distributor Cap is going bad, replace it now before it dies and your car wont start. generally if you're at 100k miles they should be replaced, but mine lasted till 130k (it would misfire on acceleration and then it just stopped running). The Cap/Coil is located under the intake valve on the intake manifold, it is rather hard to get to without removing the intake manifold or the brake fluid resivoir. This is also a 250-300 dollar part(i know... owwie), but if it runs good otherwise its a good investment. if your car doesnt have 100k miles on it this probably isn't your problem unless you've somehow shorted your ignition system out.
