    Higher quality coils can produce a stronger spark and the insulation around the coil is of better quality so you don't throw the spark to the valve cover or short out internally.

    Well do you think running different spark plugs have anything to do with it? Since I only changed out the coils could having different plugs play a role?

    I think that's quite possible but the coils should be able to deal with it regardless.

    It looks like you're using the plugs for the 1.6 L engine.



    It would probably be smart to put in a plug recommended for the 1.8 or 2 L engine regardless.

    But you were using those plugs for 5 months with no problems right ?

    Correct because I read that those were the plugs for the fsze. It was making good power of it still throws the code I'll have it checked for compression.

    We're in summer now.
    Coils like to fail when they're really hot.

    Well within minutes I don't think so. It failed before I left my apartments and it was only 80

    Well you have to wait until your new injector is installed anyway, so see what results you get with that.

    All I'm really trying to say is that if you end up having to get new coils again, go with OEM.

    This is the spark plug and the cylinder look like I got pictures to show you how it looked. I'm swapping in the new injector now.

    If you have a fouled cylinder you can get carbon build up in your combustion chamber.

    This is a piston from my parts car that was burning a lot of oil.





    If there's a lot of built up crap in the combustion chamber you reduce the volume and increase the pressure then you need more KV to pop a spark through a spark plug.

    PS.. That spark plug looks fine.

    If the center of the picture is the top of your piston then it looks fouled.

    These are my piston rings...




    Notice how there's no expansion of the oil ring.

    Our engines have great compression but the oil rings get siezed and let a butt load of oil past them.
