How can I remove a piece of an ignition coil that broke while I was trying to replace it?
I was replacing the spark plugs & ignition coils and an ignition coil on the passenger side broke off, now the tip is stuck in there and I can't seem to find a way to remove it. I tried with a curved tip plier, but cannot reach the piece left in there. Please help!

Take a long skinny screw driver and some double sided carpet tape. Put carpet tape on end of screw driver and it should be sticky enough to grab the broken part. Aother way is to get some sray foam and spray on the screw driver. Let it dry enough to get nice and sticky then try gabbing again. Good luck

3.7L Engines Each individual spark plug is located under each ignition coil. Each individual ignition coil must be removed to gain access to each spark plug. Refer to Ignition Coil Removal/Installation. Prior to removing spark plug, spray compressed air around base of ignition coil at cylinder head. This will help prevent foreign material from entering combustion chamber.
Remove spark plug from cylinder head using a quality socket with a rubber or foam insert.
Inspect spark plug condition.
Start the spark plug into the cylinder head by hand to avoid cross threading.
Before installing coil(s), check condition of coil o-ring and replace as necessary. To aid in coil installation, apply silicone to coil o-ring.
Tighten spark plugs to 27 Nm (20 ft. lbs.) torque.
Install ignition coil(s). Refer to Ignition Coil Removal/Installation.
Hello: Remove the distributor cap. Check the rotor, see if there is a black spot where the metal piece makes contact with the carbon stick out tha makes contact with the coil. Did you replace that piece when you replaced the coil, it should have come with the new coil? Also did you reinstall the ground strap that was under the coil and went to the stick-out that the black connector plugs into the cap?
Each plug has it's own ignition coil. Remove the bolt from the coil and pull with a twisting motion. Be sure not to lose the spring inside the boot. If I remember right these plugs are 9/16. If you have an air comressor, be sure to blow any debris out of the hole before removing the plug.Don't forget the anti-sieze and dielectric grease when reinstalling. Hope this helps.
Unplug the engine control sensor wiring connectors from the ignition coil and the radio ignition interference capacitor.
Tag and disconnect the spark plug wires from the coil by squeezing the locking tabs, then twist the tab and pull upwards.
Unfasten the four ignition coil retainers and remove the coil and the coil ground wire the radio ignition interference capacitor. Save the capacitor and coil ground wire for re-installation of the coil assembly.
Wipe the coil towers with a clean cloth dampened with soap and water. Remove any soap film and dry with compressed air. Inspect the coil for cracks, carbon tracking, dirt or damage and replace as necessary.
Since you replaced the coil I would guess you have no spark?
If your getting fuel and no spark the first thing I would check or replace is the ignition module. It is located in the distributor. If you getting no spark and no fuel (no injector pulse) I would replace the ignition module and the pick-up coil. The pickup coil is the round piece under the rotor in the distributor that plugs into the module. The distributor needs to be removed (mark the base where it is held in place and the position of the rotor before removing so that it can be reinstall din exactly the same position!!) and disassembled in order to replace the pick-up coil.
check step by step to find the problem. You mean the spark plug has no spark, ok, remove the spark plug no.1 into a cable and try to spark between spark plug and the cable, and if no spark, remove the spark plug cable from the ignition coil, and spark between the cable and the ignition coil, if there's no spark, replace your ignition coil, because probably is dead. ok
My 2004 Verona had factory installed "NGK BKUR6ETB" regular spark plugs which I replaced at 30,000 miles. The 2005 model year is supposed to have Iridium spark plugs. To replace the spark plugs: 1. Remove plastic top engine cover. 5 nuts 10mm socket. 2. Unplug connector from each ignition coil. qty 6. 3. remove 2 hold down bolts per ignition coil. 10mm socket. 4. remove ignition coil, lifting straight up. 5. Spark plug is now accessible, use deep well 5/8 spark plug socket to remove.
