Something doesn’t smell right

Less than a mile into taking my son to his soccer practice and my nose starts twitching.  Something doesn’t smell right.  Even with all the different sensations that a car like this provides, it’s amazing how in tune you become to the car.  The slightest change in how the steering feels, the smell of the exhaust, the sound of the exhaust.

Something didn’t smell right and there was a definite electrical sound – with the only thing in the car electrical being the ignition (and instruments), I pulled over for a review.  Couldn’t see anything at first, but decided to turn around and take the truck instead.

Open up the bonnet … yep .. sure enough the coil is fried.  Looks like some major arcing – a new coil ordered.
