I noticed some liquid coming out of my msd ignition coil yesterday. Doesn't look to be broken but the distributor wire got a bit loose. Is the coil faulty? What would happen if i just dried it and kept driving with it? What the hell is the liquid for?

The liquid would be the cooling oil if it is in fact coming from the coil.

The liquid was yellowish in color....it came out when i took off the wire that connects the distributor and the coil. it doesn't seem to be broken....i bought it last year. Could it make my car run crappy?

As stated above it is a cooling fluid very similar to vegi oil. If you keep running it dry it will eventually heat up and blow the coil. No warnings either!!!! I would replace it or at least carry a spare coil in the car. It will probably run just fine up untill it blows..
