It is not a module. on top of the distributor cap. it is a coil if it is firing right just but it in to the next new cap.

How to replace the altanator

most auto parts store have instruction on how to remove and reinstall an alternator instructions in the parts box or ask the auto parts store to print out the installation instruction.

1. disconnect one end of the battery post.
locate alternator, remove the plug or wires connect to alternator.
you are going to have wrenches/sockets/
loosen the piece that got a curve in it so you can loosen the fan belts
remove the belts, there maybe 2-3 bolts, they go threw the alternator case and screws into the block of motor, after removing bolts, lift alternator out, put the new one in just like you took the old unit off.
tighten the belt firmly, not to tight and not to loose so the belts make noise or slip, you should have 1/2 - 1 inch play up and down. tighten all bolt, make sure belts are secure, reconnect the alternator plug and the ground thats a nut. re connect the battery start the car.

Have 84k miles and am wondering when do I need to replace the spark plugs and wires, timing belt (replaced last at 45k) and any other preventative maintainace? Any information will be helpful. Thanks for...

Plugs and wires at 50,000 miles, the timing belt should last 100,000 miles. I am curious why the first one was replaced at 45,000? I am thinking you may have replaced the serpintine belt.

There are 2 types of tensioners that GM used some had a 3/8 square in them that you could use a 3/8 ratchet and pull up to release tension. Other style you used the bolt head in the center of the tensioner pulley and pulled up.GOOD LUCK
