Customer Question
Hi, my name is...

Hi, my name is ***** *****. I have a 1999 Mitsubishi Galant ES 4 cyl. I am having a problem where the left coil pack (looking at the engine) is constantly damaging, even after 20 mins of driving. It runs only on 2 cylinders and if I change it out it runs on 4 until that one damages as well

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Why do I have constant ground on all 3 of those wires to that coil pack?

Hi,

Are you using genuine Mitsubishi coils or aftermarket coils?

Do you have a volt meter? If so can you please measure the voltages on the three wires to the coils? You should have one ground, one 12V and one low voltage (under 3V) wire on each coil. We want to confirm the reading on the low voltage wire.

I'm using Mitsubishi coils. Low voltage had 0.8. If I leave the ignition on it heats up that coil quite a bit.
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Doug, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Thanks. And your .8V wire, what does it read while cranking (both coils)?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The other doesn't have a low voltage.
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Doug, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

What is the voltage on each wire, all six wires? Key on and cranking.
