Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the engine is running fine then there most likely isn't an issue with a coil. If there was an issue with an ignition coil then you should lose spark at least briefly on the affected coil, which would be felt as a misfire.

Do you know what P codes are currently setting?
