Rover GEMS coils needed!
Posted by: Richard/SIA

Bought a '96 Rover Discovery on impulse to deal with the pending winter weather.
Knew it had high miles and some "Minor Issues" but it was cheap enough.

Sorry to find that it's just new enough to not have a distributor so I cannot use my S.E.A. engine analyzer on it.
Did determine that it has two deads coils, no wonder it's so slow and needed all new O2 sensors.

Hoping some one here might have a couple of good coils to sell?
Cannot drive it at all until they are replaced, all that unburned gas would surely kill the new O2 $ensor$.
This system uses four coils fireing two plugs each.
If I ever meet the engineer who decide to mount the coils behind the engine, requiring the intake to be taken apart for replacement, I will have VERY stern words for him!

Not wanting to put a lot into this Rover as I'm going to try to find an OLDER model to replace it ASAP.
The less electroconvenientgreeneco junk the better!

Found that the coils were not an issue, after buying a set.

Problem was the computer coil drivers, got a replacement and found out and it's not "Plug & play"!
Sold the car, any vehicle that can ONLY be programmed by the dealer is one I refuse to own.

So I will never own any vehicle newer than what I currently have.
