I'm afraid Renault coils fail in the same way that sh1t stinks and the taxman gets upset if you don't pay him!

My Avantime gets through a coil ever 8k miles or so - and I have to pay for them now. I think the problem is they overheat because of lack of airflow and bad design. When one goes another usually folloes fairly soon afterwards.

Ideally you should change them all at the same time - however a coil changed by Renault under warranty will be done on its own! Make a note of when each coil fails as I don't know if there's any warranty on them - 12 months?
