I think your logic is good, I'd look at the coil next too. Used ones can save you a lot vs. new.
Thanks, I'll price one out tomorrow unless someone has another suggestionI think your logic is good, I'd look at the coil next too. Used ones can save you a lot vs. new.
I cleaned all oil off and it's not pouring back in there but yes the spark tube gaskets need doing soon. And no it runs like this immediately after starting in all conditions.no correlation with moist/wet conditions?
no oil on plug boots?
only look for new or used subaru coils. if you are out to try something different then what you have.Thanks, I'll price one out tomorrow unless someone has another suggestion
which aftermarket coils ave you tried and had good luck with on plain H4 subarus of 1995-2009?I have had the exact opposite experience with Subaru coils. I have seen plenty fail and I have replaced them with quality aftermarket coils without a problem. They usually have some signs of tracking around the spark plug connections. You generally have to look close to see the tracking.
I have also seen leakage from the wires at times.
