Car hesitant when gas is accelerated
Coil pack and ignition module keeps failing, I have replaced total of 5 times, 2 used, 3 new 2 different brands and shops. Getting ready to have them replaced again. Rain/ moisture is a factor. First 4 lasted 2 to 3 wks, current one about 7 to 8 wks.
Coil pack and ignition module keeps failing. Used 2 used ones at first and getting ready to have 3rd new one replaced. First 2 new ones lasted a wk to 3 wks. So tried a different brand with 3rd one and shop, it lasted about 7 to 8 wks. Rain seems to be a factor or moisture.
car would hesitate to go and misfire randomly for the past month i didn't think anything about it as it was hardly noticeable but it was raining today and as my girlfriend and i pulled into the driveway from going to the bank the car died now 3 hours later i have pulled the coil pack and noticed that it had exploded out the side of the round coil near the center of the coil pack id say there was definite moisture involved. hope there not to exspincive
have had to replace module 4 times after market doesn't last near as long as chevy parts.but even 2 of them have failed started at about 60000
