When the coil is...

When the coil is going bad would the engin pop?

Mechanic's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

The day I bought it. One week. Sometimes it starts then pops real bad. Then it won't start.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?

Yes and we changed the gas and the battery.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

What would be causing the popping?
