engine problem:

23 hp kohler command, 1600 hrs,... just started happening today, one cylinder has weak spark, and it is causing the engine to miss. basically run on one cylinder.
put a new spark plug in the bad cylinder, it ran a little better, but still skipping and missing. is this problem due to: a bad ignition coil, etc?
never had any problems like this with my kohler commands.

any help,
thanks,

Matt

Matt,

It does sound like a faulty coil, You can perform the below test with a multimeter to remove all doubt before just throwing parts at it.

The part number will be stamped on your coil for identification....
