...from my earlier posting, had an issue that just after the engine reached operating temp, it started missing. This would last for about 5 minutes, then clear up until another temp cycle. It did eventually set a #4 cyl misfire code. Finally dug into it today, sure enough, bad coil. UNDER the rubber boot, the tower had cracked down the length. It had also shot a hole through the boot (minute from the outside observation). Followed the 'tracking' right to the metal heat sink base of the coil.

Was surprised that the local Autozone not only had one in stock, but it was an exact replacement, KIA p/n stamped on it. Haven't had that happen before.

All is well now :)
