Question Ignition control module, Ignition coil

Hi I have a 95 Camry with 285,000 miles. Its the DX 5 speed 4cyl.
I was on the highway and the car just cut out, then it came back on, cut out and came back on. I parked it in the driveway and then it would not restart. I let it sit for awhile and
I was able to restart it. I drove it about 3 miles and it conked out again. I took it to a shop and they said my ignition control module and ignition coil were fried.
Is this an easy fix that I could do myself. Any detailed instructions would be greatly appreciated.

Try the AutoZone websites vehicle repair guide sections for info, pick up a Haynes service manual for about $20 or photocopy the info if your library has service manuals.

Ease of coil replacement depends on where it is located. In California emissions cars it is out in the open and easy to replace. In Federal emissions cars it is inside the distributor making it harder. If the coil is inside the distributor best have some service info.

If you have the service info you should be able to DIY.
