Connectors for coil packs not being fully seated and clipped or retaining clip broken (common). tip: squirt a little brake clean inside of connector before connecting it to coil pack, it makes the silicone weatherproof seal really slippery and she slides right in. Tip2: if broken, use a little silicone where retaining clip used to be and connect to coil pack. That will keep it plugged in and still allow you to unplug until you replace pigtail connector for coil pack.
