SOURCE: 1998 pontiac firebird coil pack, will coil make it

yes, it can happen. check for spark from the number one coil using spark plug wire and hold it near a grounded point. it should be a consistent spark with engine running. compare to different coil wire for verification. those coil packs are partially replace able because each coil fires two plugs. replace the no.1 portion with a new one from parts store. 28.00

SOURCE: How do you change the coil pack on a 2006 pontiac

The answer to that question is TOTALLY different depending on which engine your Gran Prix is equipped with. The choices are:

> V6-3.8L VIN 2
> V8-5.3L VIN C
> V6-3.8L SC VIN 4

This is really must know information - especially if you are asking somebody for help with your engine, engine accessories, or engine control systems.

SOURCE: how do i kno when to change my coil pack on a 98

you only need to change this if it stops working or one set of the coils stops or causes a firing problem.also keep in mind that if a complete coil stops working it could be the ignition module causing the problem

SOURCE: what wires are connected to the ignition of a 1990 pontiac tempest

I assume you mean the ignition keyswitch. You'll have 12 Volt ignition power from the IGN fuse or fusible link. There will also be an ignition terminal and a starter solenoid terminal. If you have the GM key security system (with the little black and silver resistor embedded in the ignition key), there will be two more wires going to the engine computer for checking the resistor.
I don't have the wire identification for these, except an educated guess that the power and solenoid wires will probably be the largest ones, and the power wire is most likely red. The solenoid and ignition wires probably have different colored stripes on the insulation. The anti-theft key wires are functionally interchangeable, although they may share a one-way connector that plugs into the switch (they are probably also the smallest wires since they don't need to carry a lot of current).

Need a picture of firing order on a 1991 Buick Park Avenue

Check this site I believe the black images is the coil pack firing order. I used a coil pack from a different model but had to open it up and change the firing order since the spark wires wouldn't reach for my 91 buick. You should have some knowledge about wiring before attempting that. Basically I just switched the wiring on each side inside the coil pack.

Code P0300 on a 2002 Pontiac GP with misfires on # 1&3. replaced plugs & wires checked coil packs. this occurred after the car stopped along side road with bad water pump.

try switching one of the other coil packs with one of the bad ones. if this works then there you go. another way of telling if it is a coil pack is to disconnect the spark plug of the affected coil pack. if its a strong coil then you will hear the spark as well as see it. compare it to another plug boot that has the good spark. it sounds to me that it is a coil pack. i just changed one about 2 months ago with the same problem as yours.
