We go over how to install a distributor coil on our jeep. The ignition coil is responsible for sparkage making the booms that come from the tailpipe. The reason we thought it was the coil is that our tailpipe booms were sputtering and performance sucked at times. Another reason we picked this place to start is the Ignition Coil is so easy to replace.
Symptoms of a Bad or Failing Ignition Coil, if you are looking for the flux capacitor we talked out, check with the doc.
1. Engine misfires, rough idle, and loss of power
Common symptoms associated with a failing distributor coil are engine performance issues. This will cause sputtering, loss of power, misfires, and rich conditions reported to the O2 sensor. See that video where we replaced the O2 sensor. https://youtu.be/a1y-81EPXe4
2. Check Engine Light comes on
We had our code, and for our jeep, it was vague saying that it could be the O2 sensor or up. We are in Florida so a check engine light does not mean we fail registration, but for all yall in emission required places, this is bad. See this video for how to get your Jeep OBD codes without a reader. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1y-81EPXe4&t=89s
3. The car is not starting
Now for all yall with multiple coil ignition, a coil failure you can still limp home. Our Jeep only has one coil so if it completely fails, we are walking.
If you think your ignition coil is the issue, they aren't that much to replace. Here is a link for this coil for the YJ. https://amzn.to/32XY1CL
