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.

Replace all coils and still continue getting misfire codes.
Engine started missing and the check engine light came on. I took it to the dealer and the Diagnosis was codes P0308. Coil Failure. P0105 followed SSM37459. Replaced #8 coil. Programmed ECM. Performed Injection clean.
Lost power found a bad coil and replaced it. Problem happened again soon after. Would reccomend replacing all coils and plugs when one went bad.
