Changed Plugs & Coils, had problems - RESOLVED!
The car was doing some extremely rough idling and so I finally broke down and borrowed a OBD from my neighbor mechanic. Multiple cylinder misfires!!! It was in spanish so I didn't navigate through everything. I yanked all the new coils put the old in just to start somewhere - car ran like a top!!
BAD COILS!!!!! And at least five of them judging by how many errors the OBD scanner kicked up. I am so pissed off. Bought them from FCP Groton. My father who has an E38 said they have a bad rep on his board. He asked why I bought from them.
I have a return in the works. FWIW, I bought Bosch coils. Are they fake? One of the boxes arrived to me with finger prints in grease on it. I saw that and got a bad feeling. Who the hell returns Coils?
Pissed In Brooklyn,
