The part that was failing was the big high voltage capacitor - that would also take out the transistor (JFET) - all on the other side of the PC board and encapsulated with epoxy. The results would be no spark and catalitic converter meltdown. But that was the story before the version 3.7 came along. The latter fails in a much more benign matter - the misfire detection circuitry fails and causes P1312 with the engine still running smoothly.
