The car sputters when you accelerate, and Check Engine light has come on(76,000 miles). I was told by Firestone it needed a tune up $1200.00(plug wires, plugs, manifold gasket, timing belt, and labor). They said to replace the spark plug wires they would need to remove the manifold. I did the job myself (without removing the manifold) and the problem did not go away. I used the MIL code, it indicated 43. I replaced the ignition coil pack. The problem went away for 9 months. Coil pack was bad, and 2 pluk wires, replaced them(parts supplier Auto Zone). It lasted for about 18000 miles. The problem has returned. I will need to replace the coil pack to have the car inspected. But why am I loosing coil packs?
have the same problem?
