Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.When you changed the coil it worked fine for a few hours. That tells us the coil is the issue. Try another coil. CHeap aftermarket coils have a high failure rate and you could have just got a dud. Before putting in the new one check the continuity between the two wires at the coil connector and let me know what you get just to be sure they arent shorted out. But since it worked fine for a while I doubt they are.
