My car was sluggish and losing power upon taking it in for servicing I had five of eight coil on plugs replaced by dealership, not more than one week after my car started the same symptoms and had an clicking noise in the engine. I was told buy the dealership that their diagnostic equipment was giving them false reading, one saying that the car was alright, and the other saying that it wasn't. they couldn't do anything for me. Please contact me with an answer on what I can do.

On several occasions my Ls will crank but will not start. The anti-theft indicator on the dashboard flashes which indicates that the car will not start. I have been stranded on three separate occasions only to have my car towed to the dealer where it starts just fine for them. I have had the following replaced: Transceiver, anti-theft module, computer and the cables that connect the transceiver to the computer. The dealer has not been able to solve the problem.

On three different occasions since February, an ignition coil has failed in my Ls(# 2,3, and 6). Each time the repair has cost almost $300, and in addition since the dealer thought a small leak in the valve cover gasket may have caused the problem with #3, that was replaced for an additional $225. In the 45 years I have been driving, I have never had a coil go bad. There is clearly a defect in the original coils or engine design. The dealer has indicated that they have replaced many of these on Ls's.

Major problems with vehicle's ignition coils. On April 18, 2004 the service dealer replaced one coil. Then on June 15, 2004 two more coils were replaced. Within two weeks, another coil or more went bad. There was random misfires which remained the same even after repair, then it worked fine but was followed by the vehicle running rough.
