You need to check to see how much power it is receiving. If there is too much, the coil will not last too long.

They were lasting about a week or so but they were going shorter an shorter. I used 3 of them today. I'm no mechanic so I don't no much. How can I check the power an if it's too much what do I do?

Check the voltage to the coils. All you need is a basic volt meter. If it is getting 12+ volts, that is a problem. The only time it should get that much is when the key is in the start position. Voltage is cut when in the run position to protect this type of problem.
