is this a bad ignition coil? if not what could it be?
« on: March 04, 2011, 11:59:00 AM »

ok so my car out of the blue almost stalled out and then i push clutch in and it hesitates, i have driven this car for 4 years havnt stalled out in over a year but now when i give it 3/4 to full throttle it missfires and sputters, when i am idle if i give it WOT it almost stalls out / stalls out and when i listen in the engine bay i hear a clicking like an electrical connection isnt 100% near the ignition coil area, i took the multi meter to it and the + - pins read 1.6 ohms and the side terminal and the center high tension terminal read 13,800 ohms, what do you guys think? new coil time? if not what else could it be?
