    this motor sits sideways...so that would put it on the firewall side of the motor....would it be higher or lower on the motor...going to be working in a tight space so I'd like to know where I'm going before I get in there...

    I am nearly 100% sure that it is under the front crankshaft pulley (actually the harmonic balancer that the pulley is attached to) on your engine. (the one lowest on the engine that drives the serpentine belt) Look there. If you see a wire harness going under the pulley, that is where it goes).

    its on the back side of the engine toward the front who told the fire wall?

  • Richard Scordino May 11, 2010

    can't remember exactly where yours is but in general it will be found either under or next to the crank pulley or on the bellhousing in line with the flywheel (yours is likely near the pulley)

I have a 93 Buick Skylark GS 3300 Engine Series and my car is cranking but not firing. Diagnostic scan turned up a DTC42 code-spark timing error. The spark plugs are not firing. Replaced crankshaft sensor...


think a timing belt slippage or camshaft position sensor,
deffiantly something there to take a deeper look at.
double check the cams and their alighnment marks that they alighn with TDC if out of sync. nothing will fire right,the coil pack has no ides where anything is for some reason,good luck with this one,Gary
