The yellow blue is the + side of coil but to be safe get a test light connect one end to the negative side of battery or a good clean earth on the engine turn ignition. Check which wire has power .The one with power is for the + side of coil . Check test light on battery to make sure it works

Pull an easy one and check. The resistance should be really close. I don't check. I pull another and swap them. If the misfires goes to that cylinder, replace the coil. If not, I check wiring for the original misfire. You can use a noid light for the coil plug also.

to the diagram. Cylinders are connected as shown on the diagram in
blue. 1 goes to cylinder 1(sparkplug furthest from coil pack), 2 to 2, 3
to 3 and 4 to 4(closets to coil pack).<br />To test the coil pack use a
digital volt meter. Measure resistance between coil towers for coil
1(marked 1 in red on diagram) Value should be between 12000 and 14500
ohm. Do the same for coil towers 2. <br />Measure resistance between I and C1. If the measurement is more than 5 ohm the coil is defective. Do the same for I to C2.<br />Measuring voltage at I(Ignition start/run) to ground should be 10V.</span><br /><span>I
is connected to the 15A engine fuse. The radio interference capacitor
is connected between this line and earth at the coil. Disconnect it to
see if it cures the misfire.<br />C1 and C2 connect to the powertrain control module. The module earths each line to make its respective coil fire.<br />Bear in mind that aftermarket coil wires may cause problems with misfiring</span> so use OEM parts where possible.<br /><img src="suzman_6.JPG" /><br />
the coil is connected to the distributor with a wire to the body and a ht lead from the centre of the coil to the centre of the distributor cap. There will be a wire from the ignition switch to go to the coil as well
CAUTION: It is
important to twist the spark plug wire boots while pulling upward to avoid
possible damage to the spark plug wire. CAUTION: Spark
plug wires must be connected to the correct ignition coil
terminal. Disconnect the 6 spark plug wires from the ignition coil by
twisting while pulling upward.
Disconnect the ignition coil electrical connector.
