ignition coil part numbers, which one is good?

After reading about all those coils failing, I decided to keep a few in stock just in case I get stranded or even replace the rear ones profilactically. The problem is I came across several Toyota part # that fit V6 RAV4:
90919-02251
90919-A2002
90919-A2004
90919-A2007
I don't know which number is for the defective ones and which for the revised ones. There was one thread here that mentioned 90919-02251 being bad and replaced by new part #, but someone on some other forum stated that 90919-02251 are the revised ones.

Any takes?

Edit: looks like the first number is the defective one according to this: P0356 Code plus 7 other codes - (Might be a bad coil.) --2006 V6 61,000 miles

Weird, the more I read, the more it looks like the coils #4 and #6 fail the most. Why would it be?

Edit 2: A2007 seams to be the most current part # according to http://www.toyotapartszone.com/2010/...park-plug.html

Interesting how Toyota went through quite a few different coils. Clearly quality problems in Chinese made parts.

Edit 3: there is also 90919-02255 according to http://www.toyotapartseast.com/parts...-ignition.html

This is my final edit, I promise.

Anyone with evidence that the A200x parts are actually improved over the original part?
I'm asking to determine if it's worth to prophylactically swap the old parts with new parts.
I fund a cheap source of A200x parts.

Hate to see how this thread turned to a monolog.

Oh, well.
The critical reading of the previous threads with accounts of coil failures in V6 engine gives the following failure count:

Cylinder# (# of failed coils)
1 (1)
2 (1)
3 (1)
4 (5)
5 (3)
6 (3)

Considering that cylinders are arranged:

1 3 5
2 4 6

the failures seem to concentrate at the right front corner.

Interesting, isn't it? Blast of hot air from radiator perhaps? Heat soak?

FJ, I for one appreciate the valuable info in your thread. There must be a lot of heat in that area of the engine compartment. That happens to be where the battery is located which is another item prone to failure.

Cooler coolant enters near cylinder 1 and come out near cylinder 6, right? Hot coolant enters the radiator in front of cylinder 6 and the cooler side is in front of cylinder 2. So hotter air blows toward cylinder 6 too.

Nice job on the data compilation and interpretation.

I took delivery of the new coil. Here is the new coil (right) compared with the old coil that happened to be #90919-02251.





The most striking difference is a double metalic screen ouside the plastic housing in the new coil.




The old one seems to have a slight leak with small amount of reddish liquid between rubber boot and plastic. Unfortunately, I wiped most of it before taking a picture.



I read that VW had a huge problem with defective coils 2001-2003 and they all failed by loosing seals, especially in colder climate. Not sure if that holds true in Toyota's coils.

BTW, I decided to order more coils and replace them all. I came across a recommendation stating that if one coil fails all should be replaced as they tend to go out at similar times.

So, the old defective coil on the left is part number 90919-02251, and the new revised coil on the right is part number 90919-A2007? Just want to keep it straight.

Yes, the defective one is 90919-02251. And yes, the newest one is 90919-A2007. The one pictured is 90919-A2004 as I found a great deal on ebay on this one.

My research showed that amazon and auto parts sell a replacement that is identical to the defective 90919-02251 and is also known as Beck Arnley 178-8311. I would not buy this one, even though price is good at $40.

Friendly_jacek, thanks for the research you did and posted. Sooner or later several of us will need to reference your information to replace a coil.

Found this post while researching coil part numbers. I have the new style coil pictured on the right in the above comparison picture, but the part # on it is 90919-0255. The box it came in also has part # 90919-A2007 on it as well as the 0255 part #. So I am guessing they are the same part.
