So earlier last week I was stopped at a red light and the car just stopped. No warning, no sounds. Just shut off. Took a volt meter to the ignition coil and only read about 3.1k ohm on the secondary coil, and the Bentley says 6-8.5k ohms. So I figured the secondary shorted out and I was getting a crappy spark. So I bought a new coil and checked it before hand and it also read about 3.1-3.2k ohms. So I plugged in the coil before actually installing it (just sitting it on top of the rain tray), and the car started up, but was obviously running rough. I figured I fouled a plug, and they were definitely dirty when I pulled them out.
So I install the coil and replace the plugs at same time (gapped to .032"), and now it won't start at all again! Arg! So I used a spark plug wire tester that you hold next to the wire, and it didn't light up at all when I used it on the primary wire out of the ignition coil. I did verify the wire tester worked though first on my other car, so I know it works. I also had the parts shop verify the ignition control module worked, and it checked out as well. So what gives? Thanks for the help!
