    It depends which coil is bad. The front coils are very easy to replace a few minutes, rear are more difficult to replace. Look at a site like www.rockauto.com for a price on parts. I forget if the intake plenium has to be taken up to gain axcess to the rear ignition coils. You may fine procedure on Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info .There is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You get a one year subscription to year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual. http://bit.ly/alldata_repair_manuals or try http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online and get an online repair manual subscription.
