Question about 1995 Buick Riviera
Wifes car was puttering. replaced spark plugs and didn't fix the problem.. changed spark plug wires and still didn't fix the problem.. took off control modual and had it tested. was bad so i replaced it.. now it doesn't putter until its in overdrive around 55-60mph. my next guess is ignition coils.. theres three coils (one per two cylinders) and people say you cant test them.. can i just buy one and hook it up to each individual sequince of cylinders or would all of the coils be bad.. or maybe you think it might be something else.. i sure would appriciate any help..
Had same problem,new coil packs did the job!

I changed the center coil after finding the plugs fouled from that coil, but have the same poor noise on acceleration....thinking something to do withthe supercharger bypass since it idles and revs great. Oh, I paid $23 this summer at Advance Auto for 1 coil.

Just went through the same thing - change out the coil packs, one at a time. Coil packs run $30 - 50.
