Tools to replace coil pack in 09 SX
« April 10, 2020, 05:59:56 »
I have a new coil pack for my 09 SX Petrol. Iím wondering what tools would be ideal to remove the nuts holding it in.

Iíve tried using a socket wrench and a normal wrench but the nuts donít budge.  Itís in a bit of an awkward position as well.

Cheers.

Move top of air filter out of the way. Use ring spanner. 10 mm or 12 mm ?

Hi all,

Got a ring spanner set today and successfully changed the coil pack. Car is performing better now, it seems the hesitation from 2.5-3k is gone.

Replacement coil (second hand from low km car) only set me back $35 on eBay.

Cheers.

Just another update on this. Iíve been trying so many things to fix the rough feeling idle.

Mechanic checked over my car thoroughly today and said the issue isnít mechanical (although Iíd changed spark plugs, leads and coil).

The issue is the top engine mount. Apparently itís a gas type and mine is completely flat (should have a gap in between). Mechanic says as soon as I fix this the idle issue will be resolved. Heís quoting $200 to fix (which I donít think is so bad).

The issue is that due to the bad mount the vibration is travelling through the car making it feel like a bad idle, but the engine is perfectly fine.

Cheers.

Yep $200 is fair as  according to recent discussions on here I believe the mounts are roughly worth $150 each to buy.

Hi all,

Mechanic changed the top engine mount. Only charged $190 total. Made a HUGE difference. The idling vibration is completely gone.
