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?

Did you check if it’s the same cylinder that misfiring
What are you getting for codes

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
