Toyota Aurion Ignition Coils


Recommended Posts

This price is just too good to believe. I have ordered 2 lots. When they arrive, I will certainly temporarily fit them to the front engine bank to test them.

Man that is cheap. I thought when it said "each" I thought it was for one, but it's actually for 6.

Wonder how good the quality is though. Either way, good for spares when you really need one in a hurry.

Coils arrived today. A quick check revealed that these coils are not going to fit the Aurion. THe connection is incoorect only having 2 prongs instead of the required 4 prongs.

I have requested a return of the items. Seller has since amended the listing so it now shows no mention in the heading of also fit Toyota Aurion.

Yep. Very frustrating indeed. The good thing with ebay is the buyer protection platform. If there wasn't any, then it would be a free for all and all the scammers in the world will come out and play. Sometimes mistakes happen and thankfully there is a methodical approach to rectifying the situation.

Hopefully Ash, you'll be able to find the ones you're looking for mate. :thumbsup:

Latest good news is that the seller has accepted the return. I am waiting for the return postage label to arrive.

Bad news is that there are still listings on eBay incorrectly stating that coils for Ford and Mazda will also fit the Aurion. I did manage to see one photo on a listing where you can see the 2 pins in the connector. There needs to be 4 pins in the connector.

Lesson learnt here is that if it does not look like the original coil then do not buy and keep looking elsewhere.

This all the ammo you need when requesting a return. The seller will have no choice because this comes under "Not as Described" and ebay can step in anytime if the seller wants to play the silly bugger routine. It's just an inconvenience to the buyer. You have to repack, drive down to the post office and post. Time and money wasted when the seller should advertise his items correctly. 

I was looking at coils today as a matter of interest and the prices are shockingly expensive especially the Bosch ones. The cheapest I found was around $90 each and the more expensive were in the region of $190 plus region. So you can spend up to $900 for OEM quality coils. Wow !

Exactly my thoughts. Now you know why I initially thought that I was onto a great find at that price and a 5 year warranty. 

I have previously bought [Nov. 2018] ignition coils for the Aurion with a Lifetime Warranty from this USA seller. Fitted them and new Denso spark plugs 24.11.2018

6 Ignition coils for around $150 with lifetime warranty ! That's incredible really. How then do the Bosch people justify over $200 and sometimes $290 EACH ??

This guy is even offering lifetime warranty. That has to be good especially for the locals, but for us we'd have to ship back the faulty item before a replacement can be issued I'm guessing.

Or, you can plead your case via digital media to prove the item is faulty and save the wastage on shipping back only to have the item binned at your expense.

Or, you can buy 2 sets and you'd be pretty much covered for life lol..

According,to Carbole registered trademark of the ignition coil manufacture, they offer different warranties of 1 year, 5 year and Lifetime depending upon the quality of materials used. Unfortunately, they did not specify define Lifetime but I would expect say 10 years / 200,000 kms of use for a quality ignition coil before needing to be replaced.

Good info Ash, and good to hear they are repaying you..I hope the fact that there are still listings out there with the same claim wont suck others into the same issue you had..speaking to my mechanic the other day  (as he lives down the road from me) he said most good quality coil packs will for sure give you approx 10-15 years of reliable performance on Aurion engines..quality is always the answer in just about anything these days

Keep Well

This is the key I agree totally. Sometimes the more you pay upfront, the less it will cost in the long run. You might go through 5 sets of cheap compared to one set of good. Buy good and be done with it. I suspect anything that comes from China will be rubbish and will fail prematurely or give you intermittent issues. U.S.A  or Euro made is my preferred option seeing we don't make anything here anymore...

It takes a fair bit of time and effort to replace the ignition coils and spark plugs on the rear bank of the V6 in a FWD vehicle i.e. Aurion. Front bank is readily accessible and is done in a number of minutes. Rear bank takes an hour or 2 due to disassembly to get access. Imagine having to do that every 2 years instead of 5-7 years and paying a mechanic.

This is why you select the best quality at the most affordable price for both ignition coils and spark plugs. You then have some degree of control over whether to replace earlier for peak performance or recommended replacement interval instead of an immediate repair to fix a CEL.

I have heard the horror stories and I'm dreading having to do this at some point. I'm not deterred by it as I don't mind the occasional challenge.

So how long are the original coils lasting ?

I have just replaced an original coil on my Dec.2008 Prodigy with 109K on the odometer + occasional weekend idling time for about 2 years. I am assuming that there were original coils in my Oct.2006 Aurion ATX when I bought it with 160K on the odometer then replaced them at approx.195K.

Wow, 109K isn't all that much that it could warrant a replacement. I am surprised actually. I wonder if they used the same coils on the 50 as they did on the 40. I wouldn't have a clue.

They may have improved them, who knows :g:

After one of the coils failed on the girlfriend's Yaris, I looked at the spark plugs,  immediately re-gapped them, then replaced them ASAP.

I found out later on an internet post that too wide spark plug gaps can be a cause of the ignition coil failing.

I was intending to check the spark plug gap. Your question reminded me so I christened the new 3/8" socket set. Spark plug was good approx. 1.03mm and the tip colour was brown, normal. 

Part numbers have changed over the years. I would expect that the ignition coils would have improved with ongoing product development.

All finalised with that eBay transaction. Coils were returned Thursday 21.05.2020 and I received a refund much quicker than expected.

After some more searching on eBay, ended up buying another set with Lifetime warranty from the same USA seller that I purchased from in 2018.

Good to hear the transaction went smoothly Ash. There's nothing more frustrating when things don't work out due to seller misinformation.

I had a look at those coils and the price is extremely cheap for a 6 pack too !. You think they're made in the U.S or China ?

Lifetime warranty is great but I guess this runs out if the company goes boom.

I'd be interested to hear your review when they arrive.

There are cheaper sets available on eBay but only come with a 1 year warranty. As the girlfriend says "not for me".

I am expecting that these coils being offered with a lifetime warranty have been constructed with quality materials and the expected lifespan of the part will occur. 

https://www.autoblog.com/2016/01/14/how-long-does-an-ignition-coil-last/

Seeing that the listing did not state Made in USA or mention a specific trademark name, I will assume that they are manufactured in China and quality controlled.  

As you have asked, I will check them when they arrive and confirm that they are performing to expectations.
