Jun 28, 2007- Jag Tune up

The car was running a little rough, so it was time to change plugs and change the coils (each plug has its own coil– what a money maker!) so I took the cover off,
 then removed the coil cover on the valve cover,
 to expose the coils.
 They are held on by a screw and each has a plug that needs to be demated.
 This is what the coil looks like-
 and this is what a bad coil looks like (notice the oil residue where the coil failed).

The left side was fun- it took me 2 hours to change 4 plugs because of the great access I had- who thinks up this crap!?

Cleaned up the engine once I was finished,

and yes Dusty, I am a pimp!
 I’ll have to take a pic when she is all detailed out (yeah, I do that too– no time today, though).
