I would like to check the resistance on my coils. What values should I expect to see on a healthy coil?

The FSM does not list a resistance value for the coils. It does have a test procedure:
1. Turn the ignition off.

2. If the vehicle is equipped with coil on plug ignition system, remove the ignition coil for the cylinder being tested.

3. Disconnect the fuel injector harness connector for the cylinder being tested.

4. For coil on plug ignition systems, install a spark tester(s) on the ignition coil, otherwise install the spark tester to the ignition wire.

5. While cranking the engine observe the spark coming from the spark tester.

NOTE: A crisp blue spark that jumps the gap of the spark tester should be generated.


There is a you tube video about the complexities of coil on plug systems:
