expired I am at cost for the coils that has been
replaced that was under warranty. Can anyone help
me or suggest how to handle this and why do it
keep be a reoccurring problem

Are you using OEM plugs? Have you tested the wires for high resistance? Are you saying you are replacing all 6 every 15K? Or 1 coil every 15K? Bad plugs can ruin coils. use only OEM. This is generally Denso brand.
