Hi, I'm Don from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and the next time you need a part for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video we're going to replace the ignition coils. We're going to do one of the coils; the second coil is basically the same procedure. All you're going to need is a 7/32 socket with a ratchet, and maybe an extension.

The coils are on the side of the engine. The original ones are marked one and four on that front one. Then you see there are the One Cylinder, Two Cylinder, Three Cylinder, and Four Cylinder. You follow that Four Cylinder wire right to the coil, and it's hooked to the four post. It's very important when you replace your coils, obviously, that you plug the spark plug wires back in correctly.

We do two things. We only replace one coil at a time, and as we take the coil off, we put the wires onto the new coil. The other thing you can do as well is you can just mark the new coil with a paint marker with the same markings as the original. As you saw before, the cylinders are one, two, three, and four from left to right. Make sure you plug them in correctly to the new coils.

The coils are held in by two bolts. You can see one right at top, and then the other one from the other coil if you unplug that lead there. There's the other one, and then there's the bottom screws that are directly opposite of the top ones. You can see here, Don goes for the bottom bolt first, and that's a 7/32 socket with a ratchet. You will need a socket and ratchet to do this. It really is pretty much impossible to get to the bottom bolts with a wrench. So he removes that bottom bolt first, and then he'll turn his attention to the top bolt. Now, with the bolts undone, take the coil out, and then Don removes the two bolts from the coil. Put those aside.

Here's the new coil from 1A Auto, it's exactly the same as the old one. Now, what Don will do, is he'll take and remove one of the plug wires, and just plug it right into the new coil. Then he'll take the other plug wire, unplug it from the old one, and plug it right into the new coil. That way he doesn't have to worry about remembering which one goes where. There are two tabs on the coil base. They line up in the coil. Just be careful that you don't bend those tabs. Get the new coil in place and plugged in. Then reinstall the bolts.
