    I believe it's buried under the intake manifold at the back of the block. A real PIA to get at.

I have a 96 sunfire that misfires and breaks up when it gets over 4000 rpms. It has 150 psi on every cylinder, the timing is right, has good fuel pressure, good plugs and wires, changed all the sensors,...

have you checked your fuel pressure @ 4000 rpms under load going down the road ?.... if good my next step would be ignition module if it has one under the coil packs , not too familiar witrh eco techs

How do i get to the coil pack to change it. i have i 96 Sunfire 2.2L.

There are 4 bolts on top of the engine that remove a cover, this is the coil pack. Once you have it off there are a few more bolts to remove to get the pack off.
