So I have had to change my ignition coil 3 times in 3 years and it just went bad again. The last time I replaced it was early may, so about 4 months ago. It's an easy fix but it costs about 100 dollars so I was just wondering if there might be something causing it to go bad? Oh and I got new plugs and wires since last time I changed it

Are you using OE (original equipment) or aftermarket coils, cheaper parts are exactly that. Cheaper

I used an aftermarket one this last time but the time before I used one from the dealer and it lasted 13months which was a month longer than the warranty lasted also this is what else I recently posted if it might be related.

OK so my car hesitates when you try to accelerate. It also does it at freeway speeds but you can only notice it if you have the ac on. It is the worst in reverse, if you have the ac on in reverse it almost dies. So my bf works at a shop, first they said its a vacuum leak so he replaced some old crusty vacuum lines, that didn't help so he changed the spark plugs and that fixed it for about a week but now its back, worse than before. I don't like to pay for things that don't actually fix the problem so I need some more input. Any ideas? Oh and he said the spark plugs were white like it's running lean or something. Thanks

Then he should do a fuel pressure test And put it on a scanner to watch the o2 sensor to be sure it is working within range. Also watch the MAP sensor to see if it is working properly. If all plugs were white. If only one or two, then he needs to watch the injector waveform to see if there is a bad one
