code misfire on cyl # 2 what does this mean or were would i check first
Either the spark plug or the ignition coil on cylinder two is faulty. Replace and check if code goes away.
do you have ant idea how mus=ch a coil cost and are?
Sure do, about $50-$60 and get a set of plugs too, $2 a piece. I failed to mention that depending on your model year, you might have spark plug wires vs Coil on Plug. The parts can be bought at any auto parts store or online retailer. Here is a video that might help.....http://mazda-repair.blogspot.com/2013/02/how-to-mazda-mx-5-miata-changing-spark.html
went to auo parts store they only sellin sets 250.00 so i changed the coil from # 2 to back of engine cyl and replaced plugs still have the missfire on last cyl so i now i need the coil going to look at around my miata is a 97 with only 51k
in '97 it uses a coil pack for all 4, and spark plug wires right, not individual coil on plugs?
not sure my son said it just needed one coil moved the bad coil from # 2 cyl to back of engine and changed all 4 plugs.
follow up my son said there is one pack for 2 plugs
There should be 2 coils but both part of 1 assembly on a Mk1, the coils do go faulty, I have a Mk 2.5 2001 mod el with 2 coils sat on the top of the engine & get very hot, both have had to be replaced. When you think about it the coil pack is probably one of the most stressed parts of the engine.

I found the coil set at my local advance auto for $241, www.rockauto.com has them for $135 plus shipping.
