1 coil pack is for cylinder 1 & 3 . The 1st & 3rd....moving back from the belts. 1 is on the top, three on the bottm of the coil. 2 & 4 should be the same, 2nd cylinder, 2nd back from the belts & top on the coil pack. 4 the last plug & lowest on the second coil pack. PLEASE NOTE: , A Handyman's Service manual, from an auto store can VERIFY THIS. My last experience was with the 1987- 1991 GM "Quad" 4 engines. One of the other experts on "FixYa" corrected a mistake I made on a newewr model. SO I WOULD CHECK this advise to A MANUAL. I was wrong on the other one I answewred, & do not want to add to your frustration. I have looked around my textbooks, I do not have one on that car, I have given it away.

My 1987 Chevrolet Z24 Cavalier cooling fan will


since you have already tested fan and relay and both work, the problem may be the engine temp sensor. There are two sensors. One goes to instument cluster. This is engine coolant temp sensor, the other is engine temp sensor which is usually attached to engine block, sometimes they are connected to thermostat housing with the coolant sensor. You can pully the engine temp sensor and test that sensor same way as relay. (with mulitimeter)

No spark on 1987 chevy cavalier


Crank position sensor would be my guess.
Its located the center, rear engine area, mounted in the block below the ignition coil pack and DIS module.My guess is that's your culprit.

1987 Cavalier keeps stalling and i have a difficult time starting


The stalling out part makes me want to say you have a bad Torque Converter Clutch lock up solenoid. ( TCC ) They are notorious for that.
A quick and dirty fix is to simply unplug them. It wont really harm anything unplugging it but unplugging it will make the car run a tad bit warmer and your gas mileage will suffer by about 10 mpg.
( I had to do the same thing last summer )

The no spark makes me want to say check the coil pac, ignition module under the coil pac, and the crank position sensor under the coil pac / ignition module assembly which is mounted in the block. All are located centrally on the rear of the engine under the intake manifold. You will likely need to reach them from under neath.
