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

In this video, we're going to show you ignition coil replacement. This 2008 Dodge Ram has the hemi 5.78 engine in it and the procedure to do it is the same for pretty much any truck, although if you have a Hemi engine in some of the other platforms such as the Dodge Durango or the Dodge Challenger, the procedure could be different. You actually go up through the wheel well for some of the cylinders.

Items you need include new ignition coils from 1AAuto.com. 10 millimeter socket - actually you'll need various rackets and extensions to get into different places on different coils -, flat blade screwdriver, and dielectric or silicon grease.

Open up your hood, on each side of the engine there are four coils. You can see the front one here, and then they go back, and it's all the same procedure for each one. Those ones you just need to use a short socket and a wrench. To disconnect, there's a little tab on the backside.

Push them towards the coil a little bit, push the tab to disconnect. Then a 10 millimeter socket and ratchet will remove the bolts that hold the coils. The bolts actually have little retainers on them so they don't come all the way out. Once you get it loose, just move it around a little bit and pull them up and out.

To access the coils on the passenger side, we're just going to remove the intake hose and the top of the air box. There's four clips, just unclip them. Loosen this clamp here, flat blade screwdriver, and pull this hose off, pull this hose off, and then bring your intake box up and off. It gives you access. On this side you may want to have extensions to do this second one here. Again, push the connector towards the coil some and push the tab and release.

Here's the original coil from the vehicle, and the new coil from 1A Auto. You can see it's exactly the same. It's going to install just like the original.

If you want to use some dielectric or silicon based grease and just put a little bit right inside the tube that fits over the spark plug. Put the coil back in, you'll want to push down firmly and then start the bolts probably with your hand. Once it's tight, reconnect the lead, put your air box lid back in, connect this hose, push it over. Get it locked in right. Flip the tabs up and on. Then tighten up this clamp.

Thanks for tuning in. We hope this video helped you out. Next time you need parts for your car, please visit 1AAuto.com. Also check out our other helpful how-to and diagnosis videos.
