Hope it'* not your ICM. Save those old coils as troubleshooting spares just the same.

*cough* While we wait for those coils I have an answer for your coolent level problem.

It'* probably just the sensor going bad, mine chimes all the time and tells me I'm low when in fact I'm not.

Had the post actually been supplied with current, that would have really sucked for you.

Try cleaning the contacts on the coolant level sensor and the harness. You might also want to pull the sensor and see if it'* got crud on the inside.

Matt. I'm pretty sure you don't have a coil problem, unless you're missing on TWO cylinders, not just one.

Most wreckers will want $100 US for an ICM/Coil setup, and will not sell them seperately.
