SOURCE: 98 vw beetle misfiring after rain. New plugs, coil cas cracks????

Hi, Yes it certainly could be especially if water gets in. You should also check the distributor cap. The misfire sounds like an arcing problem so it would have to be one of those two things since you changed the rest. Good Luck!

How do I install this kit HW7321 Dorman E Brake hardware no instructions

Tough question. When faced with such I usually try to find an illustrated parts breakdown somewhere online. Some parts vendors have good pictures as part of their sales materials. Also possible that the dealer has a good picture, and they are usually willing to print you a copy.

I have a 2005 pontiac gxp that has been using oil and antifreeze but I checked the antifreeze and there are no signs of oil and also the oil dipstick has no antifreeze on it either.....I used about 3...

If you have the V-8 Engine, just totally disregard this post.

If you have the 3.8L V-6 engine, your oil consumption problem is most likely to be caused by the PCV Valve if you cannot find any external leaks. These are also known for the upper intake plenum leaking antifreeze. The ports in the manifold that go to the throttle body are made of very thin plastic. The EGR tube, with its hot exhaust gasses, goes right between them. This causes the plastic to heat up and crack, causing an antifreeze leak that goes directly into the intake and gets burned in the combustion chambers.

DORMAN makes a replacement upper plenum kit to fix this problem. The kit includes the upper plenum with thicker coolant passage walls, an intake manifold gasket set, a smaller-diameter EGR orifice, and a new PCV Valve. This kit will probably fix BOTH of your problems.

The DORMAN part number for your car is 615-180 Shop around...prices vary considerably.
