Has the distributor cap gone bad again?
I want to explaine something. When cold starting, the computer allows a full 12 volts to go to the ignition. Once you take the key from start to run, the power is cut down. The purpose for this is to provide a hotter spark when the engine is cold, and then less power to the system to make it last longer.
In the old days, the resister was a replaceable item. Today, it is the responsibility of the computer to do this.
If the code you are getting is primary coil is bad, try replacing it one more time. If the same thing happens again, my guess is the PCM.
Let me know about the new distributor cap.
