Re: tfi Team rush upgrade - warm resistor wire??
The resistor wire getting 'Warm' is normal.
The resistor wire getting 'Real Warm' is normal.
The resistor wire getting too hot to touch is NOT normal.
If you can hold it between your fingers with out pain, it should be OK.
If it's too hot, then you might want to look into replacing it.
If it's hot enough to melt the insulation, DO NOT OPERATE THE VEHICLE UNTIL IT'S REPLACED.
All resistors generate heat, that's how they work.
The resistor wire should not get so hot you can't keep your finger on it, (It will be WARM to the touch), but if it's melting insulation, something is wrong, so have it looked at.
You might have one of the defective Ford Factory coils also....
They caused problems up one side and down the other.
Do a resistance check of the coil....
You should have about 0.44 Ohm on the primary side of the coil (12 volt terminals).
If the resistance is less than 0.40 Ohm, you may have a bad factory coils.
