Need a picture of firing order on a 1991 Buick Park Avenue


Check this site I believe the black images is the coil pack firing order. I used a coil pack from a different model but had to open it up and change the firing order since the spark wires wouldn't reach for my 91 buick. You should have some knowledge about wiring before attempting that. Basically I just switched the wiring on each side inside the coil pack.https://www.google.com/search?q=buick+1991+park+avenue+firing+order&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=reisU9eSH9HioAThh4D4BQ&ved=0CC8QsAQ&biw=1440&bih=748

The numbers to the cylinders are on the coil packs. Standing on the passenger side of the car looking at the engine, the right side is 1, 3, 5 cylinders. On the left is 2, 4, 6 cylinders. Put the correct number cylinder plug wire on the correct number coil pack. The 1,3,5 cylinder plug wires will go on the right side of the coil pack, and the 2,4,6 will go on the left. They will not be in order on the coil pack, so double check the cylinder number.
