Impreza GC8 Need Help Bad

my 2001 2.5rs was having prolems misfiring on cylinder 2 and 4. So i did the easy thing ngk iridiums and magnecor wires, my check engine light dissapeared for about 2-4 days and then reappeared setting misfires on all 4 cylinders, is my coil pack bad or are the horror stories about magnecor causing coil pack problems coming true, Id appreciate any help or feedback. Thanks, Derek.

Sound like the coil pack. That would pale in comparison if your head gaskets were gone and fouling the plugs.

could also be the magnecors .. they have a poor design and tend to slip off the spark plugs. try stock wires

Magnecors are just fine. If they ever slip you just get a pair on pliers and clamp them a bit. Adjustment no big deal. They are not a poor design.

Maybe not poor, but wires sometimes coming off doesn't sound like a great design... You shouldn't ever have to crimp an ignition wire to get it to stay there.

I don't know, I haven't read great things about Magnecor, around here.


Try Exeter Subaru for the coil pack: www.subaruwrxparts.com
