What is causing my coil packs to burn out and melt repetitively on my jeep liberty 03?

for coils to burn or melt indicates excessive current flow through them
have voltage checks done wiring as there may be a problem in the ignition module that is allowing excessive current to the packs

I had a missfire code saying cylinder 2 n it was missing but drivable.. Now its not its shaking horribly n i put a new new coil pack on n plug n wires n still rough low idle n coil pack is super hot to...

Try switching the new coil pack to a different cylinder and check if the miss follows the new coil pack or stays at #2. Just because the coil pack is new don't mean it cant be bad also. You did say it was getting real hot.

Mazda Soho 1.3 endura engine wires burnt. After wires were replaced everything worked. Now the car wont start even after replacing coil pack.Help me please.

My best guess with such limited info. Is that when the new Wiring was done one or more wires were Set next to the Exhaust manifold. These get extremly hot. and will Melt thru the wires and then they short out on the metal. I would look for melted wires. and replace the melted area and Keep away from the hot metal of the engine.

yes that sounds like a bad coil it will be okay when it's cold and as it heats up it will malfunction

Coil pack is getting hot and no fire is getting to the plugs, plus if i grab the wire that comes off the pack i stiil get a slight shock

I would replace the coil pack, and see if that fixes your issue. You may still get a shock from a bad coil pack, but simply not enough of a punch to fire your plugs!

Why does my 93 Caravan Start fine and run great till it warms up then dies and wont start untill it cools back down.

I had the same problem a few years ago and it was the coil pack breaking down. If it starts missing before it dies id get a new coil pack. Before u buy a coil pack you need to get it warm again and just before it dies look underneath the vehicle to see if the catalytic converter is starting to get hot, if it is hot and usually getting red hot, its stopped up.It will fool you in to thinking that the coil is bad.

I have a plymouth breeze 1999 model 2.4 engine.It is not firing on pistons 2 and 3. On top of that ,the ignition coil pack on the 2and3 pistons is getting so hot so that the rubber on the two points is...

this could be the ignition coil on the 2-3 side of the coil.inspect the connector on the coil to make sure it is good.if the coil has been this hot replace it(used one)as there will be other internal damage to it.these coils are grounded through the computer and supplied power with the key in the on position.the computer grounds the circuit for the cylinder that is to be fired.these also have coil drivers in the computer which may have shorted out.have the system checked out first before replacing parts as if its a shorted driver then it will take out the replaced coil.

Well, some things need to be done systematically. Check for spark to make sure the coils are in fact working. Check for fuel to make sure you don't have a bum fuel pump and/or plugged filter. Ignition coils will get hot. The very fact that it melted may be the sign of a computer issue. Let me know what you find and then we can move forward.

1998 dodge Neon no fire to coil

it sound like you have a bad crank sensor when the sensor gets hot it open circuits inside the sensor and you loose spark if you have access to a noid light see if you are loosing injector pulse also if so then you know its a good chance its the crank sensor
