There's often a dribble there. Years ago, I posted about a possible correlation between wide plug gaps & coil failure.
In that, for the plug gaps, (and oil IMHO) 18000 miles (service interval) is TOO LONG.
Therefore, I now Service every 9000 miles, gapping the plugs too & replacing at 18000.
Not had a coil failure since.
