Best Answer

A bad ground wire or wrong size wire could be your problem

Did you ever try replacing the plug wires with a good set. Cheep wires will make the coil get to hot. Will also burn up your distributer cap and rotor. Any time you use high performance parts all related parts should be high performance also. This is a fact cheep parts will prematurly ware out other parts.

Depending on the manufacturer, many coil packs mount on a large transistor plate that actually fires the coil pack. It's not uncommon for those transistor plate to fail.

What if your ballast resistor is bypassed on your 1973 350 Chevy engine Why?

Eliminating the ballast resistor will cause excess current through the coil, and will cause excess current through the points.When that happens, the points and/or coil will fail prematurely.

Yes, a bad ignition coil / misfire will cause an unburned mixture of gas/air to go into cat converter which will than combust in it and cause damage to either catalitic converter, oxygen sensor(s) or both. J.Dropic

What would cause the ignition coils to repeatedly fail in a 1996 Pontiac Gr Am 2.4?

Replacement coils must always be the same basic type as the original and have the same primary resistance as the original. Using the wrong coil may damage other ignition components or cause the new coil to fail. Your engine is experiencing repeated coil failures, and it may be that the coil may be working too hard. The underlying cause is usually high secondary resistance (bad spark plug wire or spark plugs), or in some cases, a lean fuel condition (dirty injectors, vacuum leak or leaky EGR valve). Future coil problems can often be avoided by cleaning the connectors and terminals when the new coil is installed. Corrosion can cause intermittent operation and loss of continuity, which may contribute to component failure. Applying dielectric grease to these connections can help prevent corrosion and assure a good connection. The spark plug wires also should be replaced following a coil failure to assure a good hot spark. New plugs also should be installed if the original plugs are fouled or are at or near their service limit (45,000 miles for conventional plugs, 100,000 miles for long-life plugs). Hope this helps you.

What can cause a 1995 Ford Fiesta to fail on emissions?

there could be many reasons that it would fail emmissions: such as sparks are bad or fouled, the spark plug wires are bad, the coil pack may need replaced,or your fuel injectors may need cleaned. If this doesnt work and you are getting the approx gas mileage, check your exhast system or your oxygen sensor.

What causes a diode to fail on a 240v solenoid valve?

Why would it? And is this the diode across the windings of the coil that supplies the back EMF (inductive kick) supression? There isn't a good reason for it to fail. A bit more information is needed here.
