Hopefully it didn't cost you too much, being from a shop! We just picked up a complete set of three coils on an ICM along with the mounting bracket from the local yard for $28.

Glad to hear all is well though.

it is the fuel pump i had the EXACT same problem then the fuel pump died altogether. I just replaced it yesterday. The miss on 1 and 4 just sounds like bad luck Its probably just the coil pack died too. How many miles are on the car?

coils can and will go bad. The 1/4 coil (at least on the newer type 2 ignition) is shared. One coil fires both posts. Same with 2/5 and 3/6.
