First off I must say, Gene Farley you are CRAZY!! 97 Tahoe does NOT have individual coils. It has a single coil mounted to the top of the intake on the rear passenger side of the engine. I've been a mechanic for over 12 years and mostly specialize in Chevy/GMC trucks and SUVs. I do agree with next answer down though that you should check for fire coming out of the plug wire at the spark plug end. If it's getting fire and fuel pressure is good then I recommend the coolant temp sensor located right beside the water neck on the front of the engine. GM vehicles are known for this problem.

SOURCE: How do I Install the Ignition Coil?

Take the coil back.
Your truck has 8 coils mounted over each plug. If your just doing a tune up you dont need any coils, just change the plugs. Unplug each coil and remove the 10mm head bolt and pull off. Change the plug and re install the coil.
I assume your just doing maintenance and not trying to fix a misfire code.

SOURCE: Re fitting a Bosch GT40R-T ignition coil to a Ford V8

The ballast resistor only weekens the power to the contact points while the engine is starting after that the secondary wiring "is" a built in resistor. I suggest you use the ballast or you'll be changing a lot of point sets.Just out of curiousity, why would you want to convert back to an older and proven obsolete type system?

1995 Tahoe 5.7L V8 won't start when it's raining


Hi, the cap, and rotor may be collecting moisture, or the ignition coil shorts out with moisture. You can spray these with a water bottle, while it is running, to find the concern. It lies in one of these ares. Make sure you inspect the coil wire as well. Good luck...Coop

Where is the rotore /cap located in a 1999 silverado 4.8


I believe those motors have a distributorless ignition system. Each cylinder has a coil mounted on top of the valve cover.

Tahoe 97 Fuel problems


Crank sensor has to be bad,or the ignition module.Remove the ignition module and have it checked at the parts store.If it checks bad,replace it,if it checks good replace the cranksensor.The cam sensor,cranksesor,and the control module control injector pulse,and coil spark.I would point more to the ignition module.But I have known the crankshaft sensor to do this also.I hope this was helpful,if so,let us know,thanks,and good luck.
