Quick Ignition Coil Question

Going from what i have read here, I assume that a small crack at the corner of the pack in a corner is a good indicator that it is likely time to replace the thing? (by small i mean thin and abit less then half the length of a AA battery)(the crack in is the corner of the white epoxy on the bottom of the coil)

Yes, in my experience.

If there is any physical damage, it should be replaced.
