Stick Coil Removal
Never drop the stick coils, especially on a hard sur-
Such a shock to the stick coils can damage it.
Air Cleaner Housing (see Air Cleaner Housing Removal
in the Fuel System (DFI) chapter)
Disconnect the stick coil connectors [A].
Remove the stick coils [B].
Do not pry the connector part of the coil while re-
moving the coil.
Stick Coil Installation
Insert the stick coils [A] so that the coil heads align with
the lines [B] on the cylinder head cover.
Do not tap the coil head while installing the coil.
After installation, be sure the stick coils are installed se-
curely by pulling up them lightly.
Run the leads correctly (see Cable, Wire, and Hose Rout-
ing section in the Appendix chapter).
Install the removed parts (see appropriate chapters).
Stick Coil Inspection
Remove the stick coils (see Stick Coil Removal).
Measure the primary winding resistance [A] as follows.
Connect a tester between the coil terminals.
Measure the secondary winding resistance [B] as follows.
Connect the tester between the plug terminal and (–) coil
Stick Coil Winding Resistance
If the tester does not read as specified, replace the coil.
Stick Coil Primary Peak Voltage Inspection
Be sure the battery is fully charged.
