What are signs of a bad ignition coil? My 92 cam has been running kinda off lately...everything had been pretty much replaced and I did teh basic tune up. Sometimes the rpms would climb up really slow then backfire and then other times it'll run normal. It keeps changing even if I've been on the road for awhile. I also noticed my gas mileage sucks too.....I swear man, I think my camry has PMS or something.

Check the coil for resistance.

Primary resistance: 0.4 - 0.5 ohms

Secondary resistance: 10.2 - 14.3 K ohms (10,200 ohms - 14,300 ohms).

alright.....thanks for your help guys. The coil looks ok but i still need to check it for resistance. The car does have a problem starting tho'....I always have to crank it twice just to get it running.
