hi i have a 205 gti 1.9 1987 model and it keeps fouling ignition coil could this be a voltage regulator or is there something more common
How many coils has to "fouled". Did you replace them with new ones? What make of coil were they?
it did have a cylinder type on it then when that went i put a original one which is a square one that screws on the manifold and i have blown 3 now, i think they are "ic" as a make. could water going into the electrics be a consideration to take into account as it seems to happen when it rains. tried a coil last night and it tried to fire but was misfiring as it was turning 10 secons later dead as a dodo.
Have you replaced the plugs as well.? if a plug mis-fires the charge has to go somewhere, and if the weakest plce is the insulation with-in the coil, it will blow the coil. Make sure the plugs are the correct application for the car. Where abouts is the water getting into the electrics? Darren
Hi, i have changed the plugs, i have put Denso Iridium plugs in, the water came in the car glove box area!!!!!!!

What was the reason behind you putting iridium in?
hi, ok we have manged to get a half fire by tapping a wire off the negetive on the battery to the neggative on the coil, the crank sensor has been bypassed what else does it use for creating a pulse for the coil to work
Hello - Welcome to justanswer..My name is XXXXX XXXXX XXX previous expert has opted out / used the opt out so is not working with you anymore, so I will endeavor to help you with this issue you have with your 205.The usual cause of repeated coil failure is a fault within the Ecu itself. This is because the "drivers" for the ignition coil are inside the ecu - as a part of the pcb / circuitry.Check though that the engine is earthed properly - check the condition of the battery earth - and earth connector to the body -and then the transmission - bad earths there can cause component failure / burn out too - so do check that first.If you keep getting repeated ignition coil failures though, and all else checks out as ok - inc the connections to the ecu - then the ecu will be your suspect Im afraid to say..that would be the next thing to consider. I would suggest sending the ecu off to one of the various ecu test / repair companies in that case....( they advertise on google so you can choose on that suits you )....So check the earthing and connections - to inc the earth for the ecu as above -and then progress with this as above to get to the bottom of this now.
