SOURCE: INTERMITTENT SPARK

Make sure the spark plugs are not platinum or anything other than regular copper plugs. The S-series uses a "waste spark" system and will destroy platinum plugs. Regular copper NGKs that came from the factory with the car work the best.

How do you know it is a spark problem? Are you able to verify spark, fuel and compression?

I ask because the usual solution to what you are describing in your problem is replacing the Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (ECTS). The factory one is plastic and cracks. When it cracks it sends the PCM a signal that the engine is 40F below zero. The PCM will compensate by dumping A LOT of fuel into the engine to try and warm it up. It will cause all kinds of starting and idling problems.

Autozone or the dealer sells the better brass tipped one. The ECTS is located just under and behind the upper radiator hose. You'll need to remove the air intake tubing to see it or get to it. It has two wires going to it and goes into a connector. Squeeze the connector at the "ears" and it will come off.

Now is the time to check the connector for corrosion and gunk. If there is clean it out very well. If there is no gunk or corrosion continue on.

A 10MM DEEP well socket will take it out. Swap it quickly because some coolant will come out (a couple of ounces). Hand tighten it and snug it with the socket (not too much because it will strip out). Connector back on (either direction it's non polar). Put the intake back on and enjoy better starting and idling.

SOURCE: my saturn sc2 2001 run

the fuel injectors can be the cause.first you must isolate which cylinder is shutting down. When the engine is missing pull plug wires one at a time to determine which one does not slow or make engine run worse. CAUTION: use rubber handle pliers or rubber glove to pull wires off plugs.

Bought coil pack for 92 pontiac bonneville connected wires underneath pack and spark plug wires now will not start at all


Did you replace all three coil packs or just one?
Did you get the spark plug wires in theproper order? (if not it may not start).
What wire did you connect underneath the coil pack (there are no wires under the coil pack). A wire bolts/plugs up to the side of the coil pack.

Do i have a coil pack


Vehicles either have a distributor for mechanically controlled igntion timing or are distributorless and have coil packs or individual ignition coils which are electronically controlled by the vehicles electronic control module or a powertrain control module. Simply look at your engine's cylinder head and see if the plug wire goes into a distributor cap or into a coil pack (which looks like a small block with other plug wires attached as well)

There is a misfire in my engine, changed plugs & wires. now it reads that the fuel leveling sensor is bad, will this help?


If there is a misfire, the cylinder that it is misfiring in will be recorded as a code in the computer.

Have the car scanned to determine which cylinder is bad. Then, replace the coil pack going to that cylinder.

Miss fire 1 and 5 changed wires and plugs


Probably coil pack. Follow spark plug wire from spark plug to where it plugs in, that is your coil pack.Some are seperatable. Depending on motor size you may have coil over plug. You said wires not (cop) coil over plug boots.If it is coil over plug it is just a boot you changed in that case the coils plug into boots & on plug & an electrical connector. They are seperate for each cylinder.

  2. Install and tighten the coil pack mounting fasteners to 9 ft. lbs. (12 Nm).
  3. Plug in the electrical connector to the ignition coil pack.
  4. Connect each spark plug wire to each corresponding coil pack tower. The coil pack towers are numbered with the correct cylinder identification. Be sure that the spark plug wires snap firmly onto each coil tower.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.

Ingnition coil b code is on how to change the coil


Do you have coil over each plug or is it a coil pack for all plugs. If each plugs has a coil, they have small screws to remove, pull the plug wire out after this. But if the coil pack, label each plug wire to keep them in order. the pack can be removed easily. It should have 4 screw, once those are out the coil pack will come off. Make sure after replacing it, you use di-electric grease on the bottom of the pack or in the coil over plug method. This keeps run-away spark and can cause mis-fire.

2001 pontiac cowl pack not fireing.


Here is a diagram of the firing order for you 3800 engine. Cylinders 1 and 4 are misfiring because the operate under the same "Coil Pack" and the coil pack has unfortunately gone bad. O'Reilly sells them for between $30-50 depending on the amount of warranty coverage you want. To replace, simply unscrew the screws that hold the coil pack in place. WAIT before unplugging the plug wires. Place the old coil pack and new coil pack next to each other, unplug one plug wire, then plug it to that same port on the new coil pack. then do the same for the other plug wire. Then screw your new coil pack in place, and start you car. should run fine!

How do i plug in the spark plug coils? what order?


If it's the four cyl., the first coil pack bolts over the #2 spark plug. The #2 coil pack wire plugs into #3 spark plug. The number two coil pack bolts directly over the number four spark plug, and the #2 coil pack wire plugs into the #4 plug. The firing order is 1-4-2-3.

Where is the coil pack located under the hood


Follow the spark plug wires away from the spark plugs. The coil packs are on top of the ignition module. The coil packs have two terminals each and will have two spark plug wires attached to each coil pack. There are 3 coil packs and I would recommend replacing all three at once. They are bolted down to the ignition module bracket with a total of 6 small screws. Two per coil pack. Remove the small screws and the electrical connectors and the plug wires. Dont forget to mark the wires so you can replace them as you found them. Installation is just the opposite of removal.
