I have 2004 Chevy Cav 4 cyl had a major miss and found the coil pack to be bad, I replaced the coil pack and it solved the problem now 2 weeks later acting the same way, I did notice a lot of black soot on 2 of the cylinders what could cause the coil pack to goo bad that quickly?

Yes it is the same 2 that are missfiring--the codes are showing random misfire and show bad coil pack it is hard for me to believe that 2 coil packs going bad in 2 weeks don't know what would cause it

The parts were used a module came with it. But even so its hard for me to believe 2 coil packs going bad in the space of only 2 weeks I just thought maybe there was something causing the coils to go bad before I wasted more money on another coil pack
