How often should I replace an ignition coil?

Ignition coils are critical to the smooth running of an engine. Without them, the engine will simply not work as it should, if at all. Therefore as soon as you are advised that the ignition coil(s) need changing, you should do so. Running an engine with a faulty ignition coil can also cause additional wear and tear on other items.

Ideally, even if there are individual ignition coils per cylinder, they are replaced as a set and not individually. On engines where there is one coil pack covering all the cylinders, there is no option in this.
