    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....
