Where is the ignition coil?

Hello,

I think I might have the case of misfiring for my Honda Accord 4 cyclinders LX. My plan is to change out the ignition coil; yet I'm unsure of its position.

If any of you guru could help me in pinpointing out where it is, that would be great.

Sincerely.

your coil, pn 30500-PAA-A01, is located inside the distributor, under the cap.

Before going to the expense of replacing the coil it may be a good idea to get the codes read and find out for sure what the problem is .A misfire is not usually cause by a coil unless you have individual coils . This is an excellent video for diagnosing misfires in a honda

check the main relay and the fuel pump. one of them is most likely getting to hot, probably from a high internal resistance. once it has a chance to cool down it will work for a while until the heat builds up again.

The main relay controls the fuel pump, it is a normal wear and tear item but it can be resoldered to last another 10 years, just resolder the larger of the solder pads for the relays themselves, there are 2 of them, works every time IF THIS IS YOUR PROBLEM. By cooling down the distributor on the aluminum part of the body with a water hose may lessen the 30 minute cool down period to see if that is it or your CKP sensor or CMP sensor may also be overheating can be cooled down to troubleshoot. THis goes for any item that can be cooled down but the items listed are suspect.
