Looking for an affordable ignition coil

Hey folks,

I've got two coils with hairline fractures at the top, which I presume are causing my is fire and rough idle issues. I'm looking at $131.95 per coil, but wanted feedback on where to find them for much less? Any recommendations?

2007 ses

Thx,

I assume you have the 2.0 dohc? Autozone lists them for only 89.99 a piece. That saves you 40 bucks per.

Rockauto.com shows some for 27 bucks up to 80 bucks, but theres not much of a description on most of them. But at 27 bucks a pop, I think I'd take a chance on those.

Can I ask you where you got that quote? Even if you have to pay shipping and duty you can get a set of four genuine Motorcraft parts for considerably cheaper than that from most US sources. Probably some local Canadian sources too.

Google
Ford Part # 4M5G-12A366-BC
Motorcraft DG507

Also fitted to some Mazda vehicles.

Thanks for the advise all.

Absolutely, my quote was from Canadian Tire. I was told by the guys at CT that the Ford coils are notorius for causing problems, hence I'd prefer to try a different manufacturer.

Moved to MK1 chat area since your not having a technical problem just asking where to get some coils. I highly recommend Rockauto.

Where the hell was you guys when I got into a argument over rackauto. BTW the Motorcraft unit is known to put out more power than a MSD unit.

Nothing wrong with the Ford coils they just want to sell you some crap at a considerable markup. Most people never have issues with the OEM Ford coils during the entire lifetime of the car.
