First, are you SURE you have the wires in CORRECT order on the coil pack? High miles? Replace crank position sensor. If not that, Maybe jumped timing chain? don-ohio

I am having trouble fiquiring out which wire goes to which plug. The wires are different lengths and the correct wire length has to go specifically with the correct plug. I have the firing order dia


The firing order is 1-2-3-4-5-6
Cyl #1 is front left when looking at engine front to back
left coil pack connects to cyls. 5-2
center coil pack connects to cyls. 3-6
right coil pack connects to cyls. 4-1
It doesn't matter which connector on the coil you use just that the cylinder is connected to the proper coil pack (the coil fires both plugs at the same time, twice per each full 4 stroke cycle)

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 98 ford windstar 3.8 with a engine miss and two trouble codes, po401 and 402, would a bad EGR valve cause this problem?


I replaced the coil pack on my friends wind star when they had a mis. If you take the sparkplug wires loose and just set them on the plugs loose it will be easy to remove them with the engine running. Useing plastic plyers or some kind of insulated grabers, one by one take the wire away from the plug/or coil and see if it makes a difference.Take it away then put it back then go to the next one.If it runs the same when the wire is off then you probably will not hear a spark at that wire. The coils do go bad on alot of newer cars.
I hope this info helps you.
