Cadillac DeVille Misfire and/or Check Engine Light Due To Failed Ignition Coil

(51 reports)

An ignition coil may fail causing one of the cylinders to misfire. Each of the two banks of cylinders has its own coil assembly. If one ignition coil fails the coil assembly for the corresponding cylinder bank must be replaced.

'Service engine soon' light is on. It states that 'Cylinder 8 misfire' is the problem. I'm hoping it's something simple like a failed ignition coil on that cylinder or a spark plug... -

Front coil pack self destructed at about 126000 miles followed by the rear coil pack at 130000. These Caddys are built like an old AMF Harley...if you like it you will constantly be sinking money into it and working on it every couple of weeks. Typical American car that lasts about 100000 miles (for $50,000) and goes to hell. On another note my Mitsubishi just turned 300000 without ever having an issue and cost 1/3 of my gas guzzling American crap box. Being close to 50YO I have had lot of cars and the Japanese have completely kicked our asses. We have produced nothing but garbage since the 70's. Unless you got tons of spare cash, another car, and lots of patience I would avoid Cadillac and get yourself a Jap car that will last over 200000+ miles. -
one of my coils had 2 of the 4 probes go out. -
My car started running ruff so my Mechanic thought I might need a tune up so I bought new coil packs new boots and new Ac Delco spark plugs and it still running ruff. It stopped briefly but started back. Is there a recall on something on these cars. If you have any suggestions please call me or email me @8103369615 or Ps. I must say that before my car started running ruff my car was so quiet when itv was on you couldn't even tell it was running. -
I've had to change ignition coils at least 4 times in the last year. -
