COIL (ignition) questrion
okay not on a Defender so sorry. But my boss has a 95 LWB about 150K miles. Was headed home to eastern NC from the MTNS of Va, stopped cut off truck (all was well). tried to start and wouldnt. long story short got it back to the shop rumaged around and found a coil that "worked". Had replaced whatever was in (stock?) with an ACCEL coil this is the supposed culprit for the not restarting. he said the coil (ACCEL) was too hot to touch... It has stock ignition and those BOSCH Platnum plugs, I have told him about those things.
SO now the truck is running again I drove it today runs good as usual on the coil from the randompartsbin. Why would the ACCEL overheat causing the truck not to restart? I havent done anything to the truck just relaying what he told me so I am not really sure what the issue could be. But it seems that the only time the truck has had any issues is when it is being driven at long interevals on the highway. Is the ACCEL a shitty coil or what? thanks for any insight I Hope all this makes sense. thanks dudes
