Is it unusual to have all eight ignition coils go bad at once. Is it complicated to replace them on your own. How do you test each coil to see if it is bad? Thank you

The easiest and cheapest way is to go to a shop wherethey use scopemeter testing.

The DIYer's way is to get the shop manual buy a spark tester and do exactly what the manual and the testers manual tell you to do to measure for spark.

Another DIYer's way is to buy a coil pack and swap it out for a bad one and then test for spark.

Not likely that all coils went. Ignition module is a common for all coils and so is battery and ignition switch.let me know how you make out.

Why is no power from the spark plug and the ignition goil?


3 possibilities:

Bad wire/connection
Bad ignition coil
Bad spark plug.

Replace each until satisfactory performance is restored. Sadly, the most expensive and most common problem will be the coil, as it is the most complicated and therefore the most prone to breakdown. If possible, replace all wires, coils and plugs. This way, you know you have good ignition devices and your vehicle is at its peak efficiency.
