Hey all, I was just wondering how to remove the coil pack from a 6 cyl engine of an EF Falcon?

I know you have to get under the car, but I still can't really manage to get it, or for that matter get the tools in there to remove it....

my car will turn over but wont fire, I have tested every thing, and now want to test my coil pack, but have the dilema of trying to get it out....

any help on how to get it out or an easier, or another way to get it out will be much appreciated...

thank you........

Remove the airfilter box assembly, and you can just reach it from there.

Just did this the other day. Took less than an hour.

Remove complete airbox and associated tubing right up to the throttle body. You can now reach the two closest 8mm bolts by reaching through where the airbox was, under the BBM. Do this with the engine cold as the heater pipe runs along here. Remove all the leads in a similar fashion. To undo the engine side bolts the back one is reached by using a double extension down through the gap in the manifold between cyls 4 and 5. The front bolt is between cyls 3 and 4 just in front of the throttle body. Remove the coil by tilting and twisting and pulling it out the way of the airbox. Installation is reverse of above procedure.

cheers
Scott

1 Remove the air box and induction tubes
2 Remove leads off coil pack
3 Disconnect main connector and capacitor lead
4 Use 8mm spanner for front two bolts from the top
5 Use 1/4" drive extensions and universal joint with 8mm socket through the top of the inlet manifold runners next to the head.
6 Remove the coil pack from the front and above the aircond. compressor
7 Wash coil pack with soapy water and dry!

No Need To Go Underneath Car !

Took mine out on the weekend to check for cracks car has done 130,000kms and was OK!
New Bosch leads and Iridium plugs and the rough idle and surging has disappeared.

Thanks guys, I got the coil out, alot easier than all that going underneath s**t..........

but any way, my repair manual says the primary coil resistance should be 0.6 ohms, which mine is 0.6 exactly....and the secondary coil resistance should be 9.2 K-ohms, and the manual says if it is not 9.2 K-ohms the coil needs to be replaced... but mine is 9.34, 9.31, 9.29 K-ohms, it's not a spot on reading like my primary coils..., thats more than 9.2 K-ohms obviously so the fact that it is alittle over 9.2 K-ohms does that mean my coil is broken?

P.S does anyone know what else I can check??

thank you, Aaron....:)

It is fine then. If it was reading 8Ohms or 10Ohms then I would be worried. The coil reads ok, but may still break down under load or at temp. Choice is yours as to whether you want to replace. If you are concerned about those reading see if you can check the Ohms on a new one and compare.

Personally I would clean all contacts and give the lead terminals a good sanding.

cheers
Scott

I might take the advice of removing the air box to make changing my plug leads a bit easier. I had a look the other day and it looks almost impossible to do it without putting the bastard on a hoist!
