I HAD TO REPLACE MY IGNITION COIL. IT IS WAS ACTUALLY SIMPLE TO DO BUT THE DEALERSHIP WAS GOING TO CHARGE A ARM AND LEG TO REPAIR. I ORDERED A NEW IGNITION COIL AND REPLACED IT MYSELF. IT IS AS SIMPLE AS REPLACING A SPARK PLUG.

Same problem keep getting misfire codes from different coils. I have replaced the coils and still get misfire codes. I am now getting a P0420 Catalytic Converter code.

car is missing intermitantly
My 2000 Jag S-Type started cutting out really bad. I took it to the repair shop and had it put on the engine analyzer which stated I had a misfire on #2 cylinder. Coil and plugs were replaced. It is still doing the same thing.

Valve cover gasket leaked oil into spark plug wells shorting out the ignition coils. Gasket and ignition coils had to be replaced.

Misfire cutbacks mostly on inclines
I had the same problem ignition coils 1 and 5. But my car runs great what sum mechanics dont kno is the diagram and numbers of where the coils are located. Also when replaceing the coils replace the spark plugs as well with platinum or double platinum. They last longer!!!:-)

Ignition coils are readily available online, and they replace similar to the sparkplug procedure. However access is limited by the intake manifold. Take your time and replace the gaskets and spark plugs while you're at it.

At startup it sputters and struggles at idle. Once it drives it is fine while driving.
