1. Don't buy cheep parts.

2. Check all wiring harnesses, including and especially the grounds for high resistance, or wire breakage. (especially since the tranny was just done) even a missing ground strap in modern vehicles can cause nightmares.

SOURCE: No spark from coil pack

The most common reasons for them going out are not using dielectric grease properly when installing, and from washing your engine.

I believe this was a huge issue with Volkswagen vehicles

SOURCE: transmission problems

I had a 01 impala that was **** too. switched to Ford and havent been to the shop since. If you look at the question breakdown for this website you will see 5 times as many posts for chevys than fords. However, you could have gotten a bad rebuild too. I had a rebuild done once and they boke most of the bolts that held the transmission in and didnt replace them.

i would do a tune up and this should fix your problem, i think the coil packs are around $30 a piece, you can just replace the spark plugs first, then if needed the coil packs. Hope this helped Tim

2005 Ford Expedition 5.4 liter. I had my engine checked out to find the coil pack on cylinder 6 was dead. I replaced the coil pack, but there is still a miss that doesn't register in the computer. Any...

If your going to work on your own vehicles
without any test equipment ,you will have to buy
one new coil or use the one you put in #6 ,and put
what you thought was bad, back in it's hole.

Then you walk the new coil from cylinder to cylinder
until you get to the bad one

You have to drive 25 miles or more to heat up
the coils. Tough this time a year. Works best on
a 85 degree day.

Codes don't always tell you what to do or replace.

Repair shop told me I needed a one new coil pack and new plugs. My 2005 Lincoln Navigator has 90,000 miles and has never had "any" engine work other than basics needed. Should all coil packs be changed...

Just change the bad coil. Each plug has its own and there is no difference when you replace a single coil or all. They could have ripped you off with all new coils, but did not.

Replacing all the plugs is a good idea for the mileage and the access. The same main parts have to be moved to get at one or 8.

2005 Cavalier misfiring on 2 cylinders, dumping fuel

Spark plugs get there voltage from the ignition coil packs, more then likely you have a bad coil pack or coil pack boot, pull one coil pack or spark plug wire or boot at a time, if you see a drop in rpm, that one is good, if no drop bad coil pack.

Looking for the transmission removal procedure for a 2005 dodge durango 4x4 automatic ?

Why do you need to remove the tranny. How many miles on the Durango? If you are under 70k miles and are the 1st or 2nd owner and paid the xfer fee to have the 7/70 warranty put into your name, your local dealer will make the repair for $100.

2004 GMC sierra 5.3 eng 1500 transmission shutter 40-55 mph

I too have that problem. I own a 2005 GMC Yukon. Shutters between 40 + 55 mph. I thought for sure the stumble I felt was a plug or coil pack because it only does it under a load. With A/C on the whole truck shakes! But it wasnt the plugs or coil packs. Answers anyone?
