    Why did you replace two coils already? What CELs are shown? What mods do you have? What happened before and after the replacement -- how did the car run before and after? How did you select which two coils to replace?

    I took it to the dealer and they determined it was an innermitent misfire. Two coils were burnt out. It ran good when I first got it, but ran really well when it got fixed. What did you mean by "CEL's" Thanks Im a but retarded with my car still... still learning.

    Yeah it came on when I turned on the car. I hope it all works out. I fixed it though... well the check engine light went off.

    Coils

    Yeah, I'm getting ready to swap out my coils, I can't figure which is the problem so I'm doing trial and error with each one at a time.

    Or I can blow $600.00 and do'em all!

    I have no CEL, but that's got to be the problem, everthing else is up to maintenance.
