Did you connected the spark plug cables were they were ??
Other thing check if they are installed right, sometimes one of them pops out,
you have to assure that they are installed properly, have to hear a click when you insert them
to the spark plug and the coil.

Good luck!!!

Just serviced my legacy b4. Had to take the battery off to get to coils, checked these and theyre working. Idols roughly. Coughs also. No power when tried to drive. Any ideas please?

Thank you for the inquiry.
Sounds like you may have a non-connection on one of your spark plug wires or the ignition coils. Certainly would explain the lack of power and and rough idling or running.
You will also want to confirm you haven't rotated any wires. See illustration for firing order: 92759554.gif

It's an easy fix. Remove the covers over the valve covers and you will see the coil packs (1 pacck of 3 over each head).
They mauy be pricey from the dealer. Try ebay.
