Hey,

I have been looking through my repair folder recently, and found I haven't changed my Plugs and Wires in a while. I've been looking around here and found some people doing coil pack at the same time, it has 175K on it, its $175...plus install. Something I should think about doing, or a waste of money?

The plugs and wires I ordered were NGK.

Thanks

If the car is otherwise running well, I wouldn't bother replacing the pack. Plugs and wires are more important.

Coils don't usually fail themselves but are taken out over time by other poor ancillary components such as bad leads , plugs and poor connections .

My 2010 Foz coil went bad just under warranty by a month, only seven trips to a dealer to diagnose and replace it. About 22,000 miles/35 months. It threw repeated codes, but the dealer blamed it on water in the gas.

You have coil on plug. The OP doesn't. O wait you don't have the XT right?

To the OP: I wouldn't even consider changing the coil.
