Coil removed from my 54k miles C4S! Two like this and three with more minor cracks!

Can't find a picture of it (know I had one though) of mine.

Took it to my Indy after it started getting "the code". When I picked it up I asked if they were indeed cracked his answer was "you tell me" and pointed to the tool chest they were sitting on. Half the top was missing from one :shock: :lol:

Had another couple that looked about like yours and one that I would have sworn was recently installed (dirty, but no visible cracks), but it had the same 70k and 14 years that the others did.

When I had the engine gone over last year, we did new plugs but the coils were still all good to go. This was at 82K. It's amazing they last as long as they do. ;)

A dab of JB Weld and it will be ready for another decade or two!

Understeer: You will hit the wall with the front end.
Oversteer: You will hit the wall with the rear end.
Horsepower: How hard you will hit the wall.
Torque: How far you will move the wall.

"If you see the barrier you’ve driven into, that’s understeer. If you hear yourself hitting the barrier, it’s oversteer."
-Walter Rohrl

Great idea! I'm going to do that so I have spares. Thanks!
