So...

I have a 1.6 Mk1 Facelift focus (52reg) which is just burning through coil packs... I have replaced 4 in the last 12 months, and the latest one is starting to develop issues at only a couple of months old. The last one was bought from ford for an arm and a leg.

Does anyone know of any issues that may cause the packs to fail? Such as unstable electrical current or anything as wild as that?

Cheers,

A

A common cause seems to be having the plug gaps too wide. This results in higher voltages being generated that can cause the pack to break down. I think the original Ford spec was 1.2mm but it's been revised down to 1mm.

take the coil pack back as it will be gauranteed get a new one from them next remove the spark plugs and decrese the gap to 1.0mm and replace gat some dielectric grease and put it on the lead to plug and plug to coil if you get any more issues it may be the wiring to the coil needs replaced a common issue
