My car has been idling rough and misfiring. I put the fault code reader in and it says I have a bad ignition coil on cylinder six. The only problem is: I don't know which one is cylinder six. Do you count left to right, right to left, or some different way? If anyone knows, it would be really helpful. Thanks so much!

Coming soon...

you count front to back. Cylinder 6 should be the very last rear cylinder.

yeah if you have a bad coil don't slack on getting it replaced. you don't really have to rush out today and get it fixed but i have seen where people have driven around for a long time with a bad coild and it eventually caused the sprk to,back fire if you will, into the DME and it totally fried the DME. just my .02 cents. but yeah the coils are super easy to replace. whenyou pull the coil look for a little white line on the boot of the coil that means the spark was going along the outside of the plug instead of through the center and making a spark.
