coil pack problem from cleaning the car
i was cleaning my car the other day, and i guess some simple green got into the bottom coil, well i noticed a problem when i was driving to work. The motor would buck and backfire and i would get no power, and it thought there was a serious problem until i talked to willwren, i explained the symptoms and here is the solution he gave me:
1. Disconnect your battery before you start this.
2. Unplug all your plug wires from the coils. (mark them if you need to)
3. REMOVE all the coils from the ICM (ignition control module).
4. Unplug the ICM harness from the ICM (you'll need a small screwdriver).
5. Get a can of WD-40, and clean all the contacts on the coils (top and bottom), and the ICM plug and jack. Both on the harness and the ICM. Let it drip and wipe it dry. All parts. WD-40 displaces moisture, and won't conduct electricity.
6. Put everything back together, and connect the battery last.
its a really simple solution to a dangerous problem. he also said that if u just ignore the problem u risk blowing the motor. I hope this helps someone out
