The OE Bosch coil requires no dropping resistor, but if someone has 
installed the incorrect coil in your car it may need one.

Fumes can have many causes. The first thing to do is look for gas 
leaks. Then check the engine cover, hatch, and window seals. If some 
of these are leaking, you can draw air in the back due to the low 
pressure created inside the car from airflow across an open window. 
Driving with just the vent windows open creates a Very strong vacuum 
inside.
