were they not interested in further diagnosis with that? most likely the physical appearance will seem ok, (if you replace a wire/plug you should do all 4 at the same time. can't remember if the 03 had what is called a coil pack, or distributor, do you know that or no?

is it 1 3 4 2 looking at engine from front of car?

that eliminates a wire issue, either the coil, or computer controlling it, is my best guess....the coils are most common to failure :(

forgot to ask, if they are individual or a set of 4?

still not telling me the firing order

obviously it can be either. The parts store said to just get one and then find the firing order for #3

if you know your vin, vehicle identification number, the 8th digit, is it a v, or u? that tells me which engine specifically, so i can tell you
