The spring from the coil to the plug in a Mazda Tribute is almost impossible to seat on the plug as well as the coil when following manual. It requires that you seat the tube/spring assembly on to the plug first, then seat the coil contact onto the spring. The spring just doesn't seem long enough, and the confirmation 'click sound' that tells you it's seated on the plug.....you just don't hear. My question is: can the spring be stretched to make it easier to seat both ends? Is there a better after-market system for getting the power to the plug from coil???

replacing coil after coil......(done at an automotive shop...at hundreds of dollars a pop). But the problem (fault code) still shows misfires at different cylinders, and the engine light goes on after reset a day or two later.
Hello, I am Randallthe spring in the boot does not snap on the plug end. it only makes contact to the end of the plugTo help acheive this, you are to use some vaseline or dielectrci grease inside the boot so it slides easier over the ceramic part of the plug. You simply wiggle and push down on the coil to slip over plug only. the spring will touch plug, never seen one that did not I own a 2002 Tribute and currently on coil #5. Its very common. I hate it, especially the back ones but sure know when the miss starts. i even keep extra coil on handle slightly, press down the coil and slip down over the plug
