Happy Re: Bad coilpack, VERY expensive part

I bought a coil pack on line from rock auto for about 44.00 worked for over a year then went out but still that is cheap compared to some of those higher prices I bought another one and I saw that there was a 10 year waranty . I still need to check on that.

Any body know where to buy a Accelerator position sensor for reasonable price

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

ECCPP

“A good quality coil needs to perform consistently from idle through the shift point or redline. The key is to maintain steady coil voltage under load with no drop off in the acceleration phase. A good coil efficiently transfers energy throughout the operating range of the engine.”

I got a brand new heavy duty ECCPP coil ranked number one on top of Audi, MSD, Bosh, etc., for only $15.00 from ebay (I don’t know what happened!). Life is easy!

ECCPP is made by:
1. Copper Winding Wire made by Elektrisola (Germany). It resists temperature variations from - 40 C degrees to +180 C degrees.
2. Epoxide-Resin Glue made Kyocera Group (Japan). Epoxide-Resin specially developed as an isolate potting material!
3. Plastic Material (PPO): SABIC (USA división). PPO can resist temperatures up to +180 C degrees as well as voltage of 36,000 volts.

Also, I replaced my spark plugs back to OEM: So, my ECCPP is operating at much optimum output. If your spark plugs are worn out, or have a wide gap it forces the ignition coils to operate at a much higher output overloading its circuitry and transistor.
1. Bosch R6: FOR8LEU2
2. Gap: 0.035 in
3. Torque: 18-21 lb-ft

Note: DO NOT use ANTI-SEIZE compounds on SPARK PLUGS like I did. Anti-seize destroys torque specifications.
GM recomends to simply coat the threads of the new spark plug with synthetic oil. Spark plugs should be installed as they come from the factory.

Pros:
More responsive acceleration
Smooth idle with or without AC running
Less engine noise when idle
Smooth ride
Improved gas millage per gallon

Cons:
I could not get the ECCPP coil to clip into the connector socket. So, with little intuition and persuasion it clipped nice.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: Not too expensive: NGK


Due to my resent ECU reset done by the dealership, and the good reviews.

I decided to replace my ECCPP ignition coil (still working well). There are tons of brand name ignition coils with cheap prices. It is hard to know if is genuine or counterfeit. So, I decided to purchase one from Rockauto.com a NGK ignition coil $168. NGK is a well know brand. Also, Rockauto more likely will buy directly from the manufacturer.

The NGK did come properly sealed in a box. It says made in China. To my surprise, it has a golden NGK stamp, and also it says Delphi. it is noticeable the build quality. Good!

I can feel my idle and ride are smoother! No regrets ….

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

The Delphi brand ignition coil pack I bought from the Vauxhall Superstore in April 2013 lasted 39,000 miles. I think I payed $178 for it shipped. That was when there were no aftermarkets available and GM wanted $350. I replaced it last month with an AC Delco for $57.30.
