Looking for a coil pack for a 2013 1.4l turbo AT. Stock, aftermarket, doesn't matter. I tore a boot so I want to buy a one. As long as it has 3 boots I will buy it. Give me a price and I will let you know.
Didn't someone confirm a while ago that a specific boot on another platform, not sure which vehicle, fit and worked for our Cruzes? I remember thinking to myself as I read it "wish I'd known that before I purchased a coil pack" Tearing a boot is a kick in the groin type of suck. So much money for a rubber part.
Yea and I did that after seeing his post. He bought an ac delco boot for another vehicle and trimmed it down. It does seem to run different with the different boot. I wouldn't say worse or better just doesn't feel the same as before. Ezap28ltz sent me 2 boots free after contacting me on here, (thank you so much again!) I am installing them tomorrow. I kind of want to buy a new coil pack to see if the car drives any different with a new one, I have about 40k miles, idk if it would fail around that many miles though.
Also after tearing the one taking it out for the first time myself I covered them in lube made for spark plugs and boots. Made sure it was okay with my uncle, mechanic of 30+ years, and he gave me the stuff that will work great he said.
To me, I saw rubber, and if you need to lubricate or protect rubber, you can use silicone spray, so I douse them with silicone spray every time I take them out. I've removed them at least a dozen times now and at 49k miles, haven't torn one.
I ran into the same problem when replacing my spark plugs for some reason at 20k miles one of my spark plugs was causing cylinder 4 to misfire. I looked up and down for just the spark plug boot and i couldnt fond anything. I ended up using the Autolite 500461 spark plug boot and cutting it from the top for the correct length and trimming off the top piece that would be to high for the valve cover so in the end it pretty much looked identical to our stock one. I also was able to use the stock springs so everything worked great. Car is running much smoother now.
I did this exact same thing, used the stock spring from torn boot. Works great, have not had any problems at all,(cost was around 7-8 bucks). I use dielectric grease on all my boots, just dab a little in the end of the boot and push on over plug. Never had any problems with boots sticking ever after doing this. I do this on all my vehicles. Also, good idea to use some anti-sieze on the threads before reinstalling plugs, makes them easier to remove when regapping or replacing.

I'm looking to sell my exhaust which is currently on my car, I got the exhaust custom-made at a local exhaust shop here in Virginia about 2 months ago, it is 2.5 piping from the cat-back to a 4-in tip.
I'm asking 250 which is what I paid.
If anyone's interested let me know. I reside in VA
