Does the cylinder numbering on the 3 coils vary? I hope I can explain this where it makes sens.
I think my OE coil pack had a misprint on the center 2-5 coil, compared to those in one of the pix at this thread:
Quick background: My OE coils had 1-2-3 for the front terminal of the coils and 4-5-6 on rears. (white numbers). They were/are paired just like everything else I see here. When I was troubleshooting a problem, I noticed I had installed the wires backwards (according to the white numbers) on the center 2-5 coil when I replaced the OE wires a year ago (one at a time, just like it came from the factory). So, I swapped those two wires, so #2 was on the front and #5 was on the back. After swapping the terminals during my weeks of problem chasing, that center coil failed, probably just a coincidence.
Now, I see a pix in my FSM that shows the center 2-5 coil numbered like those in the above thread, backwards from mine. This may sound petty, but I read up on the forward current on one plug while the other is backward current and how it takes more to fire in backward current and all. Am wondering if I might kill my replacement coil with them not agreeing with pictures...
I feel stupid asking, but if they are all numbered the same, I probably need to swap my 2-5 wires. Thanks
