The engine computer is supposed to drive sections of the coil pack in pulses. If a defect in the computer caused current to flow continuously, it would overheat and crack the coil case. Rent a scanner, read any code(s), and pursue to repairs. Replacement of the computer is likely. If so, remove the battery--the computer is bolted to the inner fender panel with several long sheet metal screws. Remove two large plugs from it's case and install the new one in reverse order. The dealer will need the number off of the old unit for proper replacement. You might be able to find one in a wrecking yard for half price. A reputable company will guarantee their parts for 90 days. You will likely need a fresh coil pack too. Hope this gets you running. We put nearly 300,000 miles on '96 Dodge Caravan, but had to replace the transmission @ 120,000.

Why does the coil pack keep goin bad on my 2004 dodge neon?

How do you know the coil pack is bad ? Did you test it , or are you going just by the P0302 - P0300 ? These codes do not mean the coil pack is bad ! Could have a vacuum leak , could have weak fuel pump , partially plugged fuel filter ! The engine could have a mechanical fault , burnt valve , bent valve , bad head gasket ! Sounds like you need stop wasting your money an take it to a pro !

What causes a 1994 Chevy Silverado 2500 with a

that would be bad coil packs ,try switching coil pack cylinder 3 with 4or 5 and see if miss fire code changes if it does it's the coil pack .or its possible where they plug in at the bottom(there should be a small oval rubber gasket on coil pack to keep out corrosion or possible not making a good connection (loose) ,oil getting in there ,you can use a timing light to narrow it down faster, pull your plugs for those cylinder and inspect for damage or fouling.and lastly check your wires if any brakes or crakes and that they fit on plugs tightly.

How do I start to fix my 2001 ford ranger 2.5L sohc.code readings of po303 & po171

My best guess is that you have a vacuum leak near #3 that is getting worse. Check the intake gasket by spraying some ether or carb cleaner on the gasket near cylinder 3 while the engine idles. If the idle speeds up, you have found the leak.
A second possibility is a bad injector on #3. An easy way to check the injector is to swap it with another one and see if the miss moves to the new cylinder that got the suspect injector.

My coil pack keeps going out in my 2005 dodge caravan.. There is no power going to the coil pack

I don't understand why you would replace the coil if you are not getting power to it.
The coil is powered by the ASD relay. Have you replaced the relay ?

Ingnition coil b code is on how to change the coil

Do you have coil over each plug or is it a coil pack for all plugs. If each plugs has a coil, they have small screws to remove, pull the plug wire out after this. But if the coil pack, label each plug wire to keep them in order. the pack can be removed easily. It should have 4 screw, once those are out the coil pack will come off. Make sure after replacing it, you use di-electric grease on the bottom of the pack or in the coil over plug method. This keeps run-away spark and can cause mis-fire.
