Question about Cars & Trucks
What are the torque specifications and how important is 7.2 ft pounds compared to 10 ft pounds for replacing ignition coils? (my torque wrench lowest is 10 ft pounds)
Ignition coil hold down bolts are thin and could snap if over tightened. Just run the bolts down snug by hand and then give it 1/8 turn . Its just enough to keep the coils from vibrating loose.

Doesn't sound like a coil pack fault i'd say either a bad earth or a cam/crankshaft sensor. have them both checked out by an auto electrician. Or you could be sleeping in your garage for months trying to sort the problem.

Please check the periodicity of the pulse to the LT circuit. If there is any irregularities here the spark can get absent. Check when the engine gets warmer as the circuit might also have problems coming up at this stage.
Finally check on the HT cables from the coils to the spark plugs.
