Any cylinders match on each set of failures?

My history:

6 months ago, #3 wire shorted to the dipstick tube. My fault, really.

Ordered new set from PFYC (best price ANYWHERE).

Installed new set, rough idle. Found 3 wires at least 3x over their spec'd resistance while on the phone with Taylor.

Mixed and matched from my old set to come up with a full set.

Finally got my full new replacement set to fix the mis-matched boots (redesign) just in time for WCBF. driverjohn2005 and I installed new plugs and this 3rd set at WCBF (KOA Campground), but no time to check resistances before installation. Noticed a misfire 2 days later (not surprising as it'* hard to feel a misfire when spending 2 full days at WOT with three SSEi'* and an SE chasing your dumb *** all over Oregon).

Now I've got a set of wires from THREE sets of wires. But it'* working.

From pfyc:

Hi Mark,

Sorry for the delay in responding to you. We are trying to find out who
warranties the Taylor wires. Normally most of our products are warrantied
directly by the manufacturer but the Taylor wires might require a different
approach. We'll get back to you shortly with a resolution.

My 6-month old Taylor wires from PFYC are apparently dead also - #3 and #5 are open (infinite resistance). I don't know if they came that way or if they failed while in the car - I just checked the resistance yesterday. This might explain the performance problem I've been having when my TCC locks up.

Willwren, your subject line is exactly how I feel too!

I have a post in the Electrical forum about it:

Dont' mean to steal your thread Bill..but curious as to what Ohm readings shoudl normal wires be? I know brand to brand they will be different.. so I guess what would be the tolerable amount of resistance before having to replace them for plug wires?

From my experiences, I think from 500 ohms to 1.5k ohms, shortest to longest would be ideal. 2.0k max for any wire? Say 500 ohms per foot max?

Thanx Duffman

I will check the resistance of mine and Tamara hopefully sometime this weekend

Whats the coil pack ohmage?
I"m assuming the primary is under the coil packs.. so anyone have pics of it that I can see where I"m suppose to get the reading for those from?

Techinfo for the coils. Primaries are the two tiny slits underneath, where it attaches to the ICM. You may need a small wire if your meter probes won't fit.

Check them cold, if they're good, pull them and check them hot. It makes a difference.
