Like the title says ^

Today I replaced a coil that had a broken spring in it. I have just recently replaced all of the coil boots but I have had a mis fire under throttle. I replaced the coil and put dielectric grease at the end of each coil boot. Now it is worse.

So before I go replacing stuff, could too much dielectric grease be the problem?

I doubt it. I always put a full dab in each of mine and have never had a problem. Are you sure you got the spring around each plug and none of them slipped off to the side?

I wouldn't think so, every connector I could find on my car has gobs of dielectric grease packed in !

How many miles on the plugs, what make/model are they, did you pull and inspect them?

I use it liberally on connectors, never an issue...usually when this comes up, its a bad cop or more than one bad cop. Rarely an o2 sensor...but since you had a broken spring, that coil pack was most likely having to arc to fire, which will ruin one fast. This is why boots need to be changed more often....unfortunately if you wait until you have a misfire to replace them, you've already damaged atleast one of the packs internally. How long since your last plug change?
