Wher do spark plug wires go from the coil pack to what cylinder it's a1998 Chevy lumina 3100 SFI V-6


look for the under hood decal it will have the plug coil # listed on it. if you can`t find it look at the coil towers some have the cylinder # on them. the firing order is 1,4,3,5,6,2. if the coil pack is facing the radiator towards the bottom of the engine #1,4 coil is the first coil nearest the passenger side then the next coil is #3,5 and the last coil is #6,2 nearest the drivers side. these coil packs are mounted to the ignition module which is bolted to the engine block.

The front bank of plug wire is easy just remove them one at a time and trace them back to the coil pack. making sure you put them back in there clip harness. The rear bank of plug wire is much harder In the shop we have a tool the titls the engine a little foward and allows you to reach in over or around the engine to gain access to the rear bank of spark plug wire . this tool is sold by OTC , Snap on , Matco , Mac or you might try your local parts store to see if they have one for loan or rent . the firing order on your buick is coil nearest the drive side is 1/4 middle coil is 3/6 and the end coil nearest the passanger side is 2/5

passanger side l----l l----l l----l drivers side

Inspection

Inspect for the correct routing of the spark plug wires. Improper routing may cause cross-firing. Inspect each wire for any signs of cranks or splits in the wire. Inspect each plug wire boot for tearing, piercing, arcing, carbon tracking or a corroded terminal.
If there is any corrosion, carbon tracking or arcing indicated on a plug wire boot or terminal, both the plug wire and component it was connected to should be replaced.
