hmm... I'm guessing there is a change of words somewhere here... Cause in the US and igniter plug is used on turbine and jet engines... In which case I'm hoping you're talking about a spark plug. In which case did you just replace 3 of them in total or have you replaced the set of the 3 times???

no the igniter is the part that switches the coils on and off, if the igniter was bad the car wouldn't run

Check your distributer cap and rotor for grooved wear or deterioration.

The 94 ES300 does not have a distributer. I did fix the problem with my car two years ago it was the ECU not the iginter.
