    Delphi Coil For 1995 Ford Explorer
    Bought this cool brand new to see if there was better performance than the existing original factory coil. It turned out to be worse. Noise come through on radio now in the form of a clicking in idling and acceleration. Also, it seems to miss a little as your driving at speed. Probably am going to put my old one back on. Total waste of $90 bucks!
