Glad you got it fixed...

The coil pack is actually 3 coils in a pack... so its possible for one coil to fail... In this case with all of the unburned fule, the ECM'* correction for seeing this unburned fuel( More Oxygen ) is to throw more fuel into the mix... In the future you may be buying a new Cat...

But glad to hear its running good now

Good thing you got it fixed....

Now change that oil...running on 2/3 coil packs is what killed the bearings on my original motor...unburned fuel washed down into the oil, which thinned it.
