There are two types of coil system on your Grand Am. I just can not recall which one's you have right now. There is the one that you need to replace the whole unit which controls all 6 spark plugs and the other system where there are three coils and each coil runs two spark plug. If you go to Auto Zone they can give you the right ignition coil system to the year of your car and they will have the step by step instructions to getting the job done with common tools. The other thing to is to have the ignition module check to make sure it's working right. A bad module will also not activate some of the coils or all or them. Good luck and hope this helps.

6 or 8 cylinder? Either way the computer (ECM) controls the coils. 6 cyl has a 'coil rail' and 8 cyl had individual coils on each cylinder. There are crankshaft and camshaft sensors that tell the ecm when to fire each cylinder

I need to remove my number 6 ignition coil but


Hello. Here is the order of things for your truck. The engine firing order for either 4.6L or 5.4L V8 is 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8. Cylinders are numbered, 1-2-3-4 on the passenger side bank of cylinders beginning at the front of the engine. Cylinders are numbered, 5-6-7-8 on the driver side bank again, beginning from the front of the engine to the back.
Soooooooo the number 6 is the second one from the front of the engine on the drivers side.

Runs bad


I don't think 2 coils will go bad at the same time.
Is this a 6 or 8 cyl?
Could be a vacuum line that's common to both cylinders.
