I went to start my car the other day and right off the bat i had a rough idle. I checked all the wires for spark and two of them were not firing. My first thought was the coil pack. I replaced the coil pack and the same thing happened. Could this be the DIS or could something else be causing the problem?

Is it throwing any codes? Possibilities include: Bad DIS, Bad CID, Bad crank sensor (probably not, they usually work completely or not at all) , loose wires to any of the above and depending on where you checked for spark-fried spark plug wires. Unless you have an endless budget (in which case let me know, I'd love a no interest infinite term unsecured loan) don't just throw money at it...check those codes...also some of the above items will not throw codes. The DIS does, I believe but I'll let someone else who knows for sure chime in on that.

Keep it shiny side up,
