thanks for the welcome. I've been around for a while. I mostly just lurk and watch all the fun.

If the coil is not working at all, wouldn't it show up as a  misfire on an OBDII reader?



Hey Herb, you think these guys are ready for me?

Hey Phil - welcome aboard!!

If any group is ready for you, it'll be this one [smilie=fingersx.gif] Throw the injector question into the mix and see where it goes! There are some good minds here (and some that maybe once were :D), without too much of the trolling and pre-K attitudes.

Mike - you know anyone else with a 5.4 Ford Truck, L or not? You could just swap them over and have them tested on another running engine. I have checked mine for simple winding resistance, but that doesn't tell you much other than its not burned open or shorted.

thanks Herb. I think I'll wait a bit on the injector questions. I kinda ended up w/ foot in mouth disease on that one. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
