Replaced coil pack on 3800 pontiac bonneville and its still missing what now?


First you need to determine what type of miss you have. Is it random on all cylinders, or is it restricted to one or two cylinders? Random misfire can be caused by crank or cam sensors that are starting to give out. Single cylinder misfires can be due to plugs, wires, coils (you already addressed those), as well as internal issues such as burnt or broken valves.

Had codes run on my 2001 Jaguar s-type 4.0. Was told it said misfire in cylinder 6. Where is cylinder 6 loacted in the firing line?


  • Below is the firing order. As you look at the engine from the front #6 is on the right side second cylinder from the front.

  • This is a coil on plug set up. That means the wires wont just pull up like some engines. There will be a bolt (probably 8mm or 10mm) that will need to be removed then the coil can be removed up and out. At this point the spark plug will be removable with a deep socket and a ratchet.

  • The misfire could be the plug, coil wire or a crack in the coils.
  • Some things to try is replacing that plug and clear the code and see if it returns.
  • Swap coil wires and see if the code follows the placing of the coil wire that was on # 6.
  • Swap the coil packs and see if the code switches to the other side of the engine.

Where is the coil pack for cylinder 5 located at for a 2002 lincoln ls


Hi, welcome to FixYa.com my name is Shawn and I will be answering your question.

They have an individual coil for every plug on this engine. Do you have a check engine light on if so if you retrieve the code it should be a P030X misfire code the X being a number between 1 and 8 identifying the cylinder that is misfiring. #1 being the passenger side front - #4 passenger rear #5 driver front #8 driver rear. They go in order 1-4 passenger side 5-8 driver side. If this is a 6 cylinder then coil 1 would be the passenger side front coil 3 would be the passenger side rear. Coil 4 would be the Driver side front and 6 would be the driver side rear. The coils are located under the center cover on the valve coves.

I hope my assistance helped you and resolved your concern, if you need further assistance please ask.

99 pontiac grand prix that is still mis firing even after we changed plugs and wires, not sure what to do now please help


Misfires can be caused by several things including all the parts you have already replaced as well as faulty ignition coils, faulty injectors, vacuum leaks and engine mechanical problems such as low compression.
With the proper equipment, injector operation can be verified by performing injector balance tests, where the operation of the injectors in the misfiring cylinders is compared to the other cylinders that are not misfiring.
Also, engine mechanical failures such as bad piston rings or leaking/burnt valves can be diagnosed with a simple compression test.
An easy (and very inexpensive ) way to verify ignition coil operation is to swap the coil from the misfiring cylinder(s) with the coil(s) from the cylinder(s) that is(are) not misfiring. Then clear the fault codes and drive the vehicle. If the same cylinders are still misfiring, the coil is not the problem. If the misfire moves to the cylinder that you swapped with - replace the coil.
Sometimes, injectors can also be tested this way, but on most GM V-6 or V-8 engines, this is not practical due to the labor involved in "swapping" injectors.

#8 coil pac, cylinder misfire...Need diagram The mechanic says I need a coil pack and spark plug replacement for the #8 ...Need diagram to figure out which one it is. it is


The #8 coil and spark plug are located on the drivers side rear of the engine. You will need a 7mm socket to remove the bolt that holds the coil down. After the bolt is out, pull the coil upwards and remove. Next you will need a 9/16" spark plug socket to remove the spark plug which is located in the hole that the coil came out of. The spark plugs in a 5.4L engine are sometimes frozen into the engine. If it is very hard to turn the plug, try spraying some WD-40 down the hole onto the plug and let it soak in for a while. Do not try to force the plug to turn, it will break and a special plug extractor will be needed to remove it.
Hope this helps you!

I have a code misfire cylinder 5 and I am not sure where cylinder 5 is on my engine and it runs like **** and when i give it gas Service engine soon light comes on. specs: 2000 v8 8.1 litre gas Vortec 8100...


Cylinder numbering for your engine is 1-3-5-7 on the left hand bank and 2-4-6-8 on the right hand bank (passenger side). To be sure where number 1 is look across the cylinder heads number 1 cylinder is always the head that is furthest ahead towards the front of the vehiclek, then count 3 cylinders back on that side, should be left, and that should be number 5. pull the spark plug first and check it and at the same time pull number 3 's plug and swap the coils from 5 to 3. If the plugs are bad replace them all. Then run the vehicle and see if the misfire code followed the coil to number 3, if it does you know you have a bad coil, they usually run about 90 - 100 bucks each, that is if the plugs or wire wasn't the problem. hope this will help you. good luck.

Arcing at coil pack. misfire on #1 cylinder. car ran rough, now won't start. How do i change the coil pack?


follow the spark plug wires to the coil packs...i believe now, you have to physically crawl under the vehicle and look at the back of the engine, to the coil packs....remove all three packs as an assembly and then remove the individual pack that you need to replace...or if you feel good enough, see if you can run your hands the back side of the engine, and remove the coil packs that way....good luck...if you need help....just call me....you in edmonton?

I have a 2006 F150 with a 5.4. I have a engine


First remove spark plug. #8 plug is, if sitting in truck, left rear plug. Have someone crank engine while you hold spark plug, connected to plug wire, ground plug to ground. Check spark. If no spark, remove plug wire from coil, connect test light from coil to ground, see if you get spark, if no spark replace coil. Leave cylinder #8 open to air to dry any unburnt fuel in cylinder.
