Coil Packs

Is there any fix for the temperamental Motomaster coil packs? I have had 3 replaced in the last 6 months. It was very wet (a good soaking of rain) in all 3 cases. I hear that Excel makes some good aftermarket ones.

Well, the Ford OEM seems to be letting me down. At $200-300 per incident, it is beginning to piss me off.

I have asked the mechanics at my local Ford dealership and they haven't indicated that it is anything else but the coil packs. It only seems to happen after a really good soaking. Maybe they are just due for replacing. I see on a few other articles that they do wear out over time.

I see JB's in Edmonton has Accel coils for your truck on at $29.99 per.

Such is life. Just passing through.

Well, it turns out that it wasn't the coils after-all but the boots. The last time that the plugs were changed (by Ford) they should have changed the rubber boots as well. A little bit of dielectric grease would have gone a long way too! A fairly cheap fix that could have cost a whole lot of money! Check out the coil boots on your trucks!
