Re: Motorcraft Ignition Coils
Posted to Technical Discussion Forum on 4/27/2013 3 Replies

Hello all, Just a follow up to my original post from Jan 14th. After a few discussions with various Motorcraft reps & no real answers or we don't have any problems with our coils to we are sorry you are having problems & we don't pay labor claims!! I decided to go to Accel coils, Its April 25th & the vehicle is still running good this is a plumbers van runs loaded always.

Last week I get a visit from 2 HOMELAND SECURITY Agents & 2 Ford brand protection engineers. Turns out that they are investigating Counterfeit Parts apparently the coils were not really Motorcraft!! Now you would never know this by the package or product they look exactly like the real thing & they came from a real distributor owned by the Cleveland Dealers Assoc.!! Stay tuned we are now hearing about other cases. Not sure if anyone else is seeing this on a national level or if this is just local.
