Misfire and/or Check Engine Light Due to Failed Ignition Coil on Toyota 4Runner

On higher mileage vehicles, an engine misfire may develop and/or the Check Engine Light may illuminate due to a failed ignition coil. It is not uncommon to replace all the coils when the first one fails in order to prevent return trips to the repair shop.
