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

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.
