Hello, I'm Brandon - Kia tech.

Did you buy the coils from Autozone or Advance? Is this an aftermarket coil>

bought from orilley do you know the problem
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
this is a joke
Expert:  internal88 replied 1 year ago.

I know that problem because the coil circuit board is overheated. The coil they are selling is inferior.

You have to get the orginial Kia coil

Do you have the 6 or the 4 cylinders? I could recommend you a site to get it.

Expert:  internal88 replied 1 year ago.

This is not a joke. That coil you installed is defected.
