Need to replace the coil pack. If there is a problem with the ignition module, then other coil pack would not work.

    There is a way to check to determine if there is a coil pack or the ignition module. It is not necessary new parts are not defective.
    The back of the coil pack terminals are called the primary inputs. The other side where you connected to the spark plugs are secondary outputs. If you make a connection to the corresponding of the working input ( 1, 3, 4,6) to check the respective out put of 2 and 5 then we can conclude:
    1-The connection you made s at low voltage so you don't have to worry about arcing. If there is a spark at spark plug at 2 and/or 5 once you make a connection at working coil pack input, then the coil pack is good for 2 and 5, but not the ignition module.
    2- Since you know the working input, that is why you have sparks at 1,3,4,6, now it is not producing sparks at output 2 and 5 then the ignition module is bad.
    Hope this can help.

If there is a carbon track on the metal plate of the Coil Module on my 1994 Firebird 3.4, that I can't just completely scrub off, should I just replace the module?

you should be fine the streak was caused from voltage leaking from a coil pack and you replaced it and cleaned the plate it was the coil at fault not the module or the plate

I have a 1995 Oldsmobile Silhouette with a 3800 engine. The engine will turn over, but will not start. I am not getting any fire to the coal pack and the injectors want pulse. I have replaced the ignition...

Amke sure that any ground wire has not broken off on the wiring harness. There should be a grooup of wires that ground at the belhousing close to the starter. One of them is the ground for the ignition/coil.

2001 Firebird V6 Sparkplug Diagram

The Firing Order is 1-6-5-4-3-2
When you take a wire off of the spark plug of a running engine, there is supposed to be an arc.

Remove and examine the spark plugs. See what condition they're in. It may be way past time for their replacement. Also check the spark plug wires. These are often neglected, and break down after time.
