Just firing on one coil but replaced it and still not working


You may need to replace the plug wires after many miles they become more resistive and deliver weak or no spark to the plugs. It could also be the ignition module it is common for GM vehicles in that year range to have failing modules.

I am trying to locate the fuse box on a 1988 buick century v6 wagon any ideas thank you


The amperage of each fuse and the circuit it protects are marked on the fuse box, which is located under the left side (driver's side) of the instrument panel and pulls down for easy access. To replace a fuse, simply pull it from the panel. Insert a new (same amp rating) fuse in its place.

I have a 1988 Buick Century Custom with the 3.8 Liter V-6. It idles rough. Plugs are good Ing wires good. Any suggestions?


Check the wires for a good connection at the cap and plug, check the rotor and cap for condition and also look for a loose or broken vacuum line.

I am not sure if you have the 2.5L (4Cyl) or the 3.3L (6Cyl); however I have included both below.

For the 2.5L (4Cyl):
Firing Order:
1-3-4-2
Cylinders:
(back of engine)
1-----2-----3------4
(front of engine)
Ignition Connections:
(back)
__
o-<----1
o-<----4
__
o-<----2
o-<----3
(front)

For the 3.3L(6Cyl):
Firing Order;
1-6-5-4-3-2
Cylinders:
(back of engine)
2-------4-------6
1-------3-------5
(front of engine)
Ignition Connections:
(back)
__
o-<----1
o-<----4
__
o-<----5
o-<----2
__
o-<----3
o-<----6
(front)

Again my sincerest apologies....

The firing order for a 4-cylinder 2.2L Buick Century is: 1-3-4-2. The distributor rotates in a clockwise direction, with #1 plug wire located at the upper left of the distributor The firing order on a 3.1 v6 is simple. 1-2-3-4-5-6 See a diagram of the 3.1 and 3.8 here. http://www.2carpros.com/forum/1999-buick-century-spark-plug-firing-order-vt177159.html http://autorepair.about.com/od/enginefiringorders1/
