Question about 1989 Chevrolet Cavalier
Starts first time when you get to point b it will not start after about 2 hrs it will start. it is a 89 cavalier with 2.0 i think. I beleave it is the coil I see the coil but how to get to it I dont know Please help me out
I hate to tell you this but they are not fun to remove. Do not try this when the car is hot you will be burnt by the exhaust if you do! You have to reach up the backside of the engine and most of the work can only be done using one hand. Make sure you number your wires so you can put them back in the right place. If you mess up the factory coils have numbers on the most of the time and number one plug will be on left side, first plug, if you are facing the car. It’s hard to tell which wire you have when it goes behind the engine. You can have the coil checked at Autozone or Advance they should be able to help you with that! If for some reason they can’t post again and I can send the information needed to check them if you think you can do it yourself.
See Figure 1
1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
3. Detach the assembly electrical connectors.
4. Tag and disconnect the spark plug wires.
5. Unfasten the three ignition coil assembly-to-block bolts, then remove the assembly from the engine.

6. Position the ignition coil assembly to the engine. Install the mounting bolts, then tighten to 15-22 ft. lbs. (20-30 Nm).
7. Connect the spark plug wires to the proper coils, as tagged during removal.
8. Attach the coil electrical connectors.
9. Carefully lower the vehicle, then connect the negative battery cable.
A 2.2 and a 2.0 are basically the same engine.
