Default Aloha from the Big Island!

Howzit! My name is Ken, and I live on the Big Island of Hawaii in the district of Puna, about 6 miles away from the active volcano. About 9 months ago I bought a gently used 2008 2.3l Ranger. A few months ago it started having misfire issues, and I was changing every part I could think of to fix it. Then I stumbled on a thread here (that I can't find now) blaming a cracked coil. Bingo! Wish I'd saw that post a couple hundred dollars ago.
I use my truck for my landscaping business, and in my off time I'm a disaster responder with the fire department and Red Cross. I'm also a Ham radio operator (KH7ZJ), and my Ranger makes a great radio shack. I look forward to participating in this community, and hopefully someone can save some time and money by not repeating my mistakes. Mahalo!

AlohaKen stay out of those lava flows!!

My scanguage ll gave me a misfire code, so first thing I did was pull some plug wires for a look. The coil was all green corroded in one socket.
