2003 Mitsubishi Montero Electrical Problem
« on: May 31, 2012, 04:38:34 PM »
So this problem just popped up out of the blue and I'm not entirely sure what it could be. My guess is that the wire is messed up or something?
I'm a real newbie when it comes to car stuff but I recorded a video to help show the problem we are having.



If anyone as some insight on the problem, please let me know as soon as possible.
Thanks in advance!

If you look between the plug wires on the coil you can actually see the arcing... you need to replace the plug wires.
While you're at it, check for cracks on the side of the coil. That is some of the worst arcing I have seen in a while!

Thanks Micah. I went and checked around the area where the sparking was and it seems that there is in fact a crack on one of the coils.

No problem. Replace the coil, and if you have the $$ the wires too and you should be good to go.

So we replaced the coil but it still is having the same problem but not as bad as when we started out. So I guess we just have to replace the wires and it should be good to go.

Thanks again for the help Micah.
