    Angry MSD Blaster 2 = DEAD

    Primary coil - 0 ohm
    Secondary coil - 5.41 ohm

    Was going up a ramp and engine started to sputter and then no power. Tow truck service.

    Engine turns but it sputters hard and engine shakes trying to start, no joy.

    I bought the MSD and Blaster 2 the same time less than a year ago; never had any problems until now. I checked the coil and it appears to be leaking oil from the negative terminal. Anyway to resurrect this coil? or is it completely dead?

    Is there another MSD coil equal to the Blaster 2 but does not use oil?

    I installed my old original Bosh coil and engine sputters briefly but started fine and then first crank after that.


    Thanks,
    jav

    BOTH of your readings are wrong, so you need to recheck that.

    And you cannot resurrect a leaking or shorted coil.

    The readings are correct but from a "working" coil's perspective, the values are off... that's why my engine stalled and I almost got hit by multiple cars. Ok, I did missed to put the "k" on the second reading but that doesn't change the fact the MSD coil is dead only after 8 months.

    Sucks MSD coil fails so quickly...appears to be a common problem.

    Anyway, I'm getting a warranty replacement of the same type/model...I'm going to install and use it but will keep my bosch coil in the car as backup, jic.

    Your secondary sounds a bit high at 5.41K ohms, but 0 on the primary when the spec 0.7 ohm, maybe your meter is not accurate enough?
    Is the MSD coil mounted vertically?
    Swapping coils and all ok now?
