Au contraire, mein fruend,
I had a '96 Cheyene (Silverado) with a coil problem.
Turns out there was a wire that was fraying that was going to the coil (I suspect a signaling lead) that was causing my engine to die when I took a hard turn. It had a distributor and a single coil. True, the coil itself wasn't bad, but it was part of the ignition system.
I just bought 3 new coils for my '02 V6 Camaro, I've had them on for about 3 months, and they have worked flawlessly so far. I know that my original coils barely lasted 80,000 miles, which I think is a JOKE in this century. I didn't see anything on these coils that suggested it was built in China, but anything is possible. Even HD gets stuff made there now, I'm sorry to say. What can you do?
