Question about 1993 Chevrolet Camaro
I have spark in all other wires. and the car will run puttery Just no spark in cylinder 6 i changed wires/plugs and ingnition coil. Still puttery and still no spark from 6.
This problem does not make much sense as #3 and 6 both get the same signal to fire the 3.4 liter fires both times the piston hits tdc both on the compression and exhaust stroke. Did you put a new coil in or a used one try to swap the coil with one of the other two and see if the problem follows the coil. If it does not follow the coil maybe you have a bad plug wire or plug

I had the same problem with my 94 3.4 Camaro. Turned out to be a worn lobe on the cam shaft. Some of the things you might want to try are doing a compression test on it. Mine all hold at 120-130 psi. Next thing is throw a new set of wires on. That doesn't work check the injector, buy a new one if you need to. If that is all good then check your cam shaft.

Check the wire going to that coil pack and see if it is working ok.You stated you already replaced that coil pack? Then me I would again check that wire as mentioned.

Do you know whether or not you have an aluminum block? Also, is that # 6 a firing order for your spark plugs/boots? If you have an aluminum block, the block has to be 100 % cool. Don't even start it before changing a spark plug. It is very easy to misthread when replacing causing shavings to get inside and then you basically have the problem all over again. You also need to put dileletic grease as well as anti-seize on the plug or boot. Any time you change plugs/boots on an aluminum block, be sure that you keep the hole covered as not to get any foriegn object inside. Also, make sure that the gap is correct even though it is supposed to be when you purchase it. It is usually a good idea to change all your plugs at the same time instead of just one if you are trying to trouble shoot, to save $$ like the rest of us. Good Luck, I hope this helps. Let me know, OK?

Check distributer cap, rotor, and specially near wire number 6. remove the cap and visually inspect looking for signs of burns or small craks. check the top of the cap to see if the coil wire has signs of contact. On the rotor, check the metal piece for any signs of burning. Hopefully this will help. Did you check the gap on sparkplug six ?
