Question about Oldsmobile Calais
Why did you change the coils?
NO--- Parts--- get replaced in a wish & hope strategy
First--- you obtain the info on the part of the system your
about to work on or have trouble with
You spend hours or days on the internet before going to
Then your prepared to know how to TEST components &
systems---------- to find a problem----------
It is all about finding a problem,the fix is a given & usually
easy, if a part tests bad or a wiring issue brings things back to life.
On the internet there is all sorts of info,video & such about your car,
your motor,your motors parts & systems & how to test them & you
can print that info & take to the car to do the testing
If you have no understanding of the basic mechanical engine
or ability to use a volt meter, then your off the a repair shop & they
don't do well sometimes either
When you come to a site like this, you have to provide the motor
your working on & lots of test results-- eg: what problems are you
having,not some shop that failed to help you,your issues,what you
want to know, how to do
All we can do is guess or point you in some direction

OK. just follow the number on the ignition coils.
And the number on the cylinders are.
The FIREWALL side are 1,3,5, Starting from the belts location.
The RADIATOR side are 2,4,6, Starting from the belts location.
The coil with number 1 go to cylinder 1. as the same way the rest of the coils and cylinders.
OK... I hope this solve your question .
THank you for use fixya.

I beleive your firing order is 1 3 4 2. 1 and 4 are companion cylinders-meaning the piston is up or down at the same time i.e. compression and exhaust stroke both pistons are up and even on the exhaust stroke the ignition fires in order to burn unburnt fuel/ h ve you checked your trigger. There is a good coil testing tool that is placed over the coil and has a magnetic pickup that allows you to see if the coil is being triggered-just because you have power doesn't mean that you will have spark. I would replace your ignition wires and look at your wiring harness very carefully- if it is very brittle and you see bare wires exposed that is your most likley problem because the trigger is working for 1 and 3 and has the crank senser input for all for spark plugs and the cam senser is used for ignition advance and your fuel injection system. try wiggling your harness and see if your coils start to work. wireharnesses are a major problem on mercedes benz vehicles of that era. I hope I have been helpful
