We have had three coils replaced and different ones continue to go bad. After the car sits idle for a few days, we start the engine. The check engine light comes on and the engine runs rough. The dealer has replaced three coils, one at a time, and now it happens again with a different coil. Is there a common problem affectingthe coils?

we have had the same problem. $280 each time one goes out. I finally decided to find them one line and do it myself. Ebay selles them for $22. Now I just need to find a way to detect the bad coil.
