The most likely fix is going to be a plug wire or plug. pull cyl 5 plug look closely at the insulator wear boot goes on see if you see marks look like a pencil wrote on it this is called carbon tracking and indicates the fire running down the plug and look at wire for any burn spots. you most likely just need a tune up.

I am having trouble fiquiring out which wire goes to which plug. The wires are different lengths and the correct wire length has to go specifically with the correct plug. I have the firing order dia


The firing order is 1-2-3-4-5-6
Cyl #1 is front left when looking at engine front to back
left coil pack connects to cyls. 5-2
center coil pack connects to cyls. 3-6
right coil pack connects to cyls. 4-1
It doesn't matter which connector on the coil you use just that the cylinder is connected to the proper coil pack (the coil fires both plugs at the same time, twice per each full 4 stroke cycle)

I would go with the ones autozone gave to you.then I would check the coil packs for those 2 cylinders and see if that's the problem. If that ain't the problem then I would check the crank sensor

1998 Park Avenue: it may not be getting fuel how can i verify this??...


the easiest and fastest way is to listen for pump activation when you turn you key to the on posistion turn your radio off turn the key to on (just before the point of starting)and you should be able to hear the humming or vibrating if you dont then you are not getting fuel. if the pump is working or you cant tell if it is go to the fuel rail look foe a cap that looks like a valve stem cap take this cap off and push the stem in if you get fuel then you know that you donthave a fuel problem if you dont get fuel to the rail then its probably the pump. hope this helps you.

Obviously, 1. the air filter, Don't clean it, replace it if it has not be replaced lately.
2. The fuel injectors, have them cleaned and calibrated.
3. Fuel pressure in the fuel rails, have it tested for too high pressure
4. Air flow sensor...test
5. Download and analize fault codes from ECM.
Other engine sensors such as the O2 sensors may be involved and should show up in the OBD (diagnostics)

Hi, could someone help me with the firing order of a 1990 Chevy Lumina power pack, please. Thanks


You didn't say what size engine you have, 4cyl. or 6 cyl.
The 4 cyl. is--- 1-3-4-2
The 6 cyl 3.1 is---- 1-2-3-4-5-6----- on the coil pack under the exhaust manifold is----- 1-4-6-3-2-5. If neither of these doesn't work, then you have a different engine.
