Found that the ignition coil was shorting to the intake in moist cold air at a cold start. When I look at the coil for a 1997 Legacy Outback, it shows a coil with male connections and no 3 wire harness coming out. Mine has female spark plug cable connections and the 3 wire harness, also marked f-569. I ordered the coil for the 1996 legacy outback since it looked correct, but it doesn't work when installed. Didn't seem to hard, connect everything (5 connections) back the way they came off and off I go, right? No start or attempt to start. Looking on the Internet, I find reference to the one I have, the f-569, but haven't found a new replacement only used. Am I missing something, or does anyone know if there is an alternative part. Thanks!
have the same problem?
