Stick Coil Removal
Remove the air cleaner housing (see Air Cleaner Housing
Removal in the Fuel System (DFI) chapter).
Disconnect the stick coil connectors [A].
Pull out the stick coils [B] upward.
First, turn the stick coil by 90 degrees, and then pull it out
by twisting the coil head to the left and right while holding
it securely by hand.
Do not pry the connector part of the coil while re-
moving the coil.
Stick Coil Installation
Apply a thin coat of grease [A] to the stick coils for easy
Insert the stick coils [B] so that the coil heads align with
the lines [C] 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 the hand tester between the coil terminals.
Set the tester to the × 1 Ω range, and read the tester.
Measure the secondary winding resistance [B] as follows.
Connect the tester between the plug terminal and (–) coil
Set the tester to the × 1 kΩ range and read the tester.
Stick Coil Winding Resistance
If the tester does not read as specified, replace the coil.
0.85 ∼ 1.15 Ω
5.0 ∼ 6.8 kΩ
