Question about 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe
Posted by Anonymous on
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.

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.

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?
