maxima 04 burning out ignition coil

goodday my name is darling and i own a 2004 nissan maxima. my car keeps burning out the ignition coil. I replace the ground cable and i throw new ground for all the coil and i put a new ground on the engine. I changed the 3 catalytic converter. and the engine was getting hot so i took out the termestat and i put the fan derectly so its on all the time. my next option im going to change the crankshaft position sensor or if u got an idea plzzz write back asap.

scan tool

The car has 6 ignition coils. One for each spark plug. The coils are controlled by the ECM (computer). The crankshaft position sensor is one of many inputs that the ECM uses to control the coils.
My point is that the trial and error method of trouble locating does not work.
A scan tool and a (trusted) person able to interrput the readings is the way to go. Can you say --- Dealer
It is possible that there is voltage problem that is stressing the coils.
Is this car a tuner?
How does the car run and drive?
