Wher do spark plug wires go from the coil pack to what cylinder it's a1998 Chevy lumina 3100 SFI V-6

look for the under hood decal it will have the plug coil # listed on it. if you can`t find it look at the coil towers some have the cylinder # on them. the firing order is 1,4,3,5,6,2. if the coil pack is facing the radiator towards the bottom of the engine #1,4 coil is the first coil nearest the passenger side then the next coil is #3,5 and the last coil is #6,2 nearest the drivers side. these coil packs are mounted to the ignition module which is bolted to the engine block.

1998 pontiac firebird coil pack, will coil make it miss on 1 cylinder, 3800 engine, misfiring, have changed plugs and wires

yes, it can happen. check for spark from the number one coil using spark plug wire and hold it near a grounded point. it should be a consistent spark with engine running. compare to different coil wire for verification. those coil packs are partially replace able because each coil fires two plugs. replace the no.1 portion with a new one from parts store. 28.00

My 98 Chevy Lumina has started to sputter in damp weather. Could it be the plugs and wires? Or the coil? If it's the coil, where is it located and is it easy for me to change? Thanks.

I would start with checking your plugs and plug wires. Check the wires for worn or burnt spots. You can take a little spray bottle and mist your plug wires. Then see if it starts to miss or you might hear it arcing which will be a snapping noise. I believe your car has a coil pack that all of your wires go to. I would start with the plugs and wires if they haven't been changed in a while.

1995 lumina cranks but will not start

Does it have the anti-theft system, if so check for the two wires that go to the ignition switch and make sure they are not broken. If they are they will need to be fixed in order to get it too run again

Spark plug change in a 1998 dodge intrepid

if you don t see any spark plug wires then your motor has coil packs(black colored boxwith 2 small electrical wires) located on top of motor 3 on one side,3 on the other.disconnect negative terminal on battery,then disconnect wire connector at each coil pack and remove 2 screws that hold down coil pack, pull gently straight up and plug is right there below coil pack
