    Not sure what it is called, But i found a crack in the plastic head part above the spark plug. I've change spark plug wires in other cars. It doesnt look the same in a tacoma. I have an extended warranyt plan. I have to bring it in to see if it is covered. If not is this something i can fix my self?

    Wow...i feel like an idiot

    I completely forgot, that it snaps right of the wires coming off of the coil pack.

    Jeez, well atleast i know the name of the cracked part now.

    Thanks

    Are you experiencing a misfire on that cylinder?

    If not, I'd epoxy the crack and forget about it.

    +1 if you couldn't get the part for free with the warranty........then epoxy it if it's not misfiring.

    no misfire...just noticed it under pre-roadtrip inspection.

    Epoxy huh...could work

    If i did decide to replace it would i have to replace all of them?

    You can replace that one only, but it doesnt look that bad. Thats just a plastic housing over the actual coil.

    I hate to think what a full coil pack replacement would cost.
