Dealership said the main office changed the gapvsetting and they adjusted all at last coil change. But now 3 months later another coil is mis firing. Sick of wasting my time and money.

I have never been educated on a ignition coil use until 2 weeks ago. The dealership replaced #1 coil. Today, an independent shop replaced #2 coil. I know #3 and #4 are coming sooner than I like. HELP. I cannot afford it.

I have put at least $800.00 of work in 2 short months time on this Accent. (Brakes, Transmission flush, 3 new belts) I am now very broke and very discouraged. I am the second owner of this vehicle. For one year, no repairs at all...now suddenly, everything at once. Is this normal? Is there anything I can do for preventative maintenance? Or to prevent the coil from backfiring?
Thanks for your suggestions in advance.

I have changed the plugs, pvc, air filter, put in injector cleaner, and a new fuel cap. I have orderd a tsp sensor. will this take care of the problem?

When driving my cruse control will excellorate and keep speeding up until I tap my brake to make it stop I've had this problem for 1 year. What do I do? I went for a oil change and the dealer cleaned something and it stopped doing it but has started back and I don't want to have to go to the dealership once a week.

Around 92000 miles the car started to have a little rough idle, not bad enough to worry about. But as I let the issue go, it gradually got worse with the car missing while idling pretty much all the time. Replaced the spark plugs 3 times, each time gave me about a week of running well and then back to the rough idle. Replaced both O2 sensors just in case, no change in idle. Eventually my car pretty much choked out at an intersection where I finally got a code, P0303. Did some research online and found there is a common coil issue with this car, so to test the theory, I swapped the coils in #1 and #3, cleared the codes, drove it around the block, check engine light comes on, now I've got a P0301. Common sense seemed to indicate I had a bad coil. Replaced it with an autozone coil. Car ran awesome for almost exactly 2 weeks, which leads us to present day, and it's starting to idle rough again. Research online again seems to indicate that this model and year has major coil issues, with folks having to constantly replace the coils. This doesn't seem legit so I'm searching for an answer to why the coils are going bad. Please help!

I have had a tune up last year, all my belts (alternator, timing, power steering and ac belts) are changed (at 80K miles), four new tires, alignment, new battery... what could it be? It's a pretty good car, but it dies when I turn the corner. It starts up right away, but the dial for the RPM stops working, until I start it up next time.

is it really necessary to replace spark plug wires when changing spark plugs?

when the temperature is in normal level while the aircon is on.

specially when the engine temperature is in normal

How can I remove the passenger side door interior door pillar--there is a rattle at top of the pillar, perhaps seatbelt related. The problem is audible on bumpy roads.
