my truck was running and then died.I wsn't getting any spark. I noticed the wire to my coil was loose, so I got it back on. It started and ran for about 5 minutes then died again. Its done this 3 times now.
my question: when an ignition coil goes bad, is it just BAD and doesn't work anymore, or will it be an on and off thing?
i know coils don't often go bad hardly ever, but its either my coil is GOING bad, if possible, or I have an electrical problem with a ground or the power going to the coil.
ps. The new motor has 15k miles on it. The ignition coil is from the old motor. Which would now have 178k on it.
have the same problem?
