Bad miss - 0900c1528008ee09.jpg Fig. Fig. 1: Ignition coil mounting-4.3L engines

  1. Tag and unplug the wiring connectors from the coil and the coil wire.
  2. Unfasten the retainers securing the coil bracket and coil to the manifold.
  3. Remove the coil and bracket and drill out the two rivets securing the coil to the bracket.
  4. Remove the coil from the bracket.

To install:
The replacement coil kit may come with the two screws to attach the coil to the bracket. If not, you must supply your own screws.

Hi I have a1988 chevy k1500 died changed coil dist wire from coil to dist have fuel no spark any ideas thanks


remove dist cap and rotor, under the rotor there is a control module (its about 1/4" tall, 1" wide, and 2-2 1/2" long) remove the module and take it to a parts store and have it tested. If its bad replace it and put dist back together and try starting it again. if thats not it then have coil check. Oh ya before you take anything apart disconect battery.

2001 chervrolet camera is missing and cutting out


You might have a bad ignition coil. Exchange the #5 coil with another position and see if the "missing" follows the suspected bad coil. If not, then check for a bad # 5 spark plug wire.
