Ticking ignition coil - any advice please TIA

Recommended Posts

I'm restoring a 1992 mk3 VR6 Golf AAA OBD1 and replaced the original ignition coil due to a flat spot at 2000 - 2200 RPM. I have suddenly noticed a really annoying "ticking" sound coming from behind the bulkhead. Using a stethoscope (!) I have realised the ticking is actually coming from the (new) replacement ignition coil.  Can anyone tell me if this is a fault with :

1. the coil

2. the ignition lead

3. the earth ground connection

I have a braid strap from the body to the engine block. Should I also use a braid strap from the 1 (not 15) terminal to the body? I've checked the resistance according to Bentley's and it's all good.


Any advice gratefully received !!

Thanks a lot
