Check your alternator see if you have a drop in voltage on your tack,then it is the problem.I too was a victim of high price tune up and still had a problem with a misfire.and cover your coil pack with a piece of rubber water run of onto your power pack .Another thing is to use a silicone spray on all wires.

Correct spark plug wiring diagram


Firing order for a 305 is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. The distributor turns counter clockwise and #1 should be the 5 o'clock position looking down at the top of the distributor.

1998 pontiac firebird coil pack, will coil make it miss on 1 cylinder, 3800 engine, misfiring, have changed plugs and wires


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

I have a 1989 pontiac firebird v6 and i took the distributor cap annd rotor off and replaced them and now the car wont start it turns over. the car nnever had problems starting before this?


it sounds like that you have the spark plug wires on wrong, get a auto manual, and look up your engine, and the firing order, and go from there to re install the wires 1 at a time. the rotor sounds like it is ok.

2001 Firebird V6 Sparkplug Diagram


The Firing Order is 1-6-5-4-3-2
When you take a wire off of the spark plug of a running engine, there is supposed to be an arc.

Remove and examine the spark plugs. See what condition they're in. It may be way past time for their replacement. Also check the spark plug wires. These are often neglected, and break down after time.
