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.
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
