My Latio AT felt jerky this morning when I drove to work.
Went direct to AD as its near my office.
They told me the ignition coil and spark plugs need to be replaced. Est $900.
Went to a small motor shop and the uncle who had a nissan diagnostic computer told me only 1 ignition coil need to change. Est $100 plus.

However, spares are available only on Monday.
Anyone knows if driving with one misfiring coil will damage the engine?

misfiring, car jerky , high FC.....for most cars usually change the

faulty one only. can use the OBD to check which cylinder misfire and change the one only.....based on subarus not sure if other cars are

also the same can change on one piece only.........

 

should not be that difficult to change most workshop should be able to do it. just how much they wanna charge.

I think AD want to play safe and eliminate the problem completely, that's why quote you to change for all spark plugs and coils if i'm not wrong?

 

BTW, my regular workshop told me Latio spark plugs are very hard to access, so the labour charge is higher.

 

 

My Latio AT felt jerky this morning when I drove to work.
Went direct to AD as its near my office.
They told me the ignition coil and spark plugs need to be replaced. Est $900.
Went to a small motor shop and the uncle who had a nissan diagnostic computer told me only 1 ignition coil need to change. Est $100 plus.

Cheers
Ben

I didn't believe it but after searching indeed it is very troublesome to get to the coil/plugs on some Nissan!  Compared to the cars I had before.

 

If you invest in a $10 Bluetooth OBD scan tool you would be able to pin point exactly which cylinder is misfiring and change just that coil.  Old plugs can cause roughness too, so change that first or at the same time.  Don't be a carrot!

worth to change all four ignition coil at one go? or just the faulty one will do?

 

as mentioned, troublesome to change coil, and labour charge might be more worthwhile to change all at once?

You need to remove your inlet manifold to access the ignition coil so labour should be expensive for this job, not worth it to install and remove inlet manifold just to test if it's the correct coil that is changed.

 

Oh, you might want to change your spark plugs when you at it, if not, you might need to pay expensive labour again just to change plugs next time.

$100 for a spark plug?
The guy must laugh all the way to the bank.
Most normal spark plug cost no more than $20.
Take 2 minutes to fit.
Looks like my workshop should move to Singapore asap for the huge profit.

maybe they use the spark plugs in O&G. :XD:

 

Yes, those sparkies used in O&G cost about 100 per piece, comes with many papers and certification. I think the paper weighs more than the plug. [laugh]

 

I crossed reference the number, looks like ordinary plug we used. [grin]

HI all,

sorry to hijack the thread.

I'm trying to replace my ignition coil for my Nissan Sunny N16.

Anyone know the model/part number for the ignition coil?

Thanks!
