    Changed both sets of plugs one set was wrong heat rating, also changed the fuel filter. All was well for a while but the problem is back again. Further investigation reveals that one coil position does not work but if the coil is switched it works fine, which points towards the low voltage circuit. As there is 12.2v at this coil position low voltage side it must be in the breaking function (the old fashioned 'Points') trying to find where this function takes place, are there 2 breaking/pulsing rotors in the distributor?

Take all of the coils out and blow air into the spark plug tubes and dry them out. Water can and will short out spark plugs.

For the 303 and 4 replace or check spark plugs. Cylinder 3 & 4 are where error detected, if error persists a little more expense likely ignition coils to test you can move 1 and 2 across and see if the error moves away from 3 & 4. Fix nor problem at a time this I'd start. Also check your battery is giving healthy voltage to your system actually do that first.

06 wrangler 4 cylinder... keeps going thru spark plugs. I have changed the spark plugs twice in 2 mnths. the 1st time was loss of power in about 3rd gear so changed to platinum and then about 2 weeks later...


Pull the plugs and compare them to the pictures in repair manual, ie: Chilton's or Hayne's. May be a bad injector flooding them or an intake leak causing a lean condition.
