Cylinder misfire coil


These engines have 3 coils and are paired 1 and 4 2 and 5 3 and 6 with a spark noid run to see if the paired cylinder has no spark if so remove coil from module and test the power supply to coil and with a logic probe test the trigger side if blinking with no spark your coil is bad. not blinking replace module.

1994 buick century coil pack location


The three coil packs are on the top of the engine, (I assume this is the 3.1 V6?) here is a picture of the coil pack, but all you need to do is follow the spark plug wires back to the coil packs (there are 3 on the V6).

Replaced ignition control module on 1994 buick lesabre, now it will start, but runs crappy also replaced crank sensor, cam sensor, all 3 coil packs, spaek plugs, and front 3 wires


check fuel pressure are fuel rail? Should be 40-47 psi. Also check filter at rear frame rail near RR tire, pull vacuum line off fuel pressure regulator at intake mainfold. Should have vac. and be dry, no gas at fitting.

Do i have a coil pack


Vehicles either have a distributor for mechanically controlled igntion timing or are distributorless and have coil packs or individual ignition coils which are electronically controlled by the vehicles electronic control module or a powertrain control module. Simply look at your engine's cylinder head and see if the plug wire goes into a distributor cap or into a coil pack (which looks like a small block with other plug wires attached as well)

Ok i recently changed spark plugs on my 1994 buick skylark. when i was done changing plugs i started car up and smelled strong exhaust smell. so i checked the plugs wires and found out that when i pulled...


Did you mean coil the 1994 3.1 did not use a distributor , sounds like a bad coil pack and cylinders #3 and #6 do use the same coil. I would also check 3 and 6 plug wires this system is a waste spark design meaning when # 3 coil fires it is supposed to go through #3 plug wire , through #3 plug ( ground) through the engine block through the #6 plug then through the #6 wire then back to the coil, Then when #6 fires it works the opposite way, so in theory you could have one bad wire affecting 2 cylinders .....
