Question about 1998 Suzuki Sidekick
How do I replace an ignition coil
You may have to take off a plastic cover or engine cover to get at them. Usually on most 1.8 liter suzuki engines they are coil on plug ignition. Usually they have two 10mm or 12mm (has been a while since the last one) they should look like little black boxes on top the engine. first things first un-hook battery black or - cable. If not little black boxes (pretty sure they generally are). Each little black box is a coil. (6 coils on v-6 4 coils on 4cylinder) At the bottom of each coil you will have either a plug wire, which is what I would start with (coils can get to be alot of $$) they may be 1 unit but I think they may be seperate. Just be gental. Un hook the bad coil from the conector usually latched at top may use small flat head screw driver to assit if changing all do 1 by one and DON'T!!! change where the clips go keep each one on the same hole it came out of. I would also invest in new plugs which are easy to replace, with a socket wrench and the right socket I recommend Denso plugs noo need to go fancy just oe equipment. just make sure to get them tight but not to tight. But the black (maybe greenish) box is what the coil is and what needs to be replaced shouldn't take too long to do I've got alot of time in on the job (auto tech). tighten the bolts down about how you tight you took them out at they are plastic. Put everything back the way it was take notes if needed. and hook the black (ground or - cable back up) and start
