Hi. The Coil Pack Retrofit (CPR) allows the use of 'coil on plug' individual ignition coils on engines with distributor based ignition systems and D, B, F and H series engines. You can also visit and download the manual for better understanding. It has all the information along with the diagrams. Good day!

How do i put new coilpacks on my 2003 trailblazer?

Hello Deborah,

Place a spark tester on your coil lead to test for spark.

If you have fuel pressure, reasonable compression and a spark your engine should at least try to start.

Why did you replace the coil packs in the first place? and did your vehicle run before the swap?

How do I fix a spark plug that's not firing on a 2004 ford mustang

If its not firing i would check your coils pack thats where your spark comes from so if there is none the coilpack or packs have probably burned up. or it could be a burnt out plug try the cheepest first plug if no spark coils will need to be checked .. easy to do. remove a or that plug not firing put it in the wire and ground it out on engine while someone turns it over if you see spark it should be blue orange is bad if you see none then plug is bad use a good one try again if still no spark coil pack.

Why the 3&4 plug not firing third coilpack so I know it not that

Either the plug wires are worn or the plugs themselves.
What are your resistance readings on the coil packs & ignition wires? What condition are the spark plugs in?

Not getting spark in #1 & #4 cylinder

Since both one and 4 are fired using the same coilpack if the location of the coilpack is easy to get to you can swap it with the 3/2 coil pack and see if the miss moves to 3/2 thus eliminating the ignition module and related circuits and confirming the coil is faulty

2000 subaru forester ignition coil wiring

Are there any other possible problems, or you are just not receiving spark at all now?

The coilpack could be dead and just need replaced. If you have a voltmeter or a test light, check the wiring on both sides of the coilpack harness to make sure it is receiving power.
I don't believe Subaru used ignitors past '99, but if they did, your should be located on the firewall behind the throttle body. Make sure it's plugged in and receiving power.

Coil packs do go bad from time to time. I had to replace mine in my
'98 Impreza a while back.
