Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

Is changing an ignition coil recommended in a tune up?

I have a 2001 Dodge Caravan....218 k,...runs's been about 60 to 70k since last tune up....other than spark plugs and wires, oil change, fuel and air filter, and pcv, should anything else need to be done?.......should I have the ignition coil changed too? thanks!

    If you have no symptoms of a bad coil (stalling, misfire, hard starts, backfire) and there's no visual signs of deterioration (carbon tracking, spark jumping), then I wouldn't change it (them).

    If you're concerned, these coils aren't very expensive, so you could buy one to have on hand. I think Rock Auto has 'em for around 30 bucks.
