LT1 coil. Think its bad. Need confirmation.. Shoebox?
Ok... the car wont start.
Cranks but wont fire.
I pulled the wire and plug out on one of the ports.
I grounded the spark plug against my header and shock tower brace and had a friend try and start the car... There was no spark..
It did spark just once on one occassion but we tried again and again but it wouldnt spark it again.
So i looked up Shoeboxes coil test page.
I un hooked the coil and tested it.
The coil read 5.75 thousand ohms on each connector.
But on my coil 1996, there are only 3 leads while on shoeboxs page it has 4 leads. Im guessing its a pre 1996 fbody...
So what does everyone think..
Just need confirmation on it before i go buy one.. And does autozone or discount auto or napa have a AC delco or equivalent coil? I dont want a junk one. And i dont have time to order one on line.. thanks
