All kinds of problems, please help
I am having major issues with my wife'* car, It is a 1993 Bonneville SE.
The original problem was a shudder at medium speeds ( a common issue according to these boards). The local mechaninc said it was a problem with spark plugs. He said that the #6 wasn't getting a spark, and the plug was fouled. So, he replaced the 3/6 coil, and it didn't help. So he decided it must be the ignition module (the plate that the coils plug into).
So I found a scrapyard module (a new one costs over 200) and put it in, and changed the spark plugs. No help.
So I checked all the wires for spark. No spark on #6. I switched out the new coil that the mechanic had put on with the one from the scrapyard (They gave me the module and all 3 coils, bracket and all...) and voila! sparks. So I plugged the plug wire back in, and started the car.
This time, it started up and died. I tink I got all the wires back on in the appropriate order, but I am not 100% certain. I had crossed 4 and 6 at one point (on the coils and plugs), while checking to see if it was the wire that was the issue, so I may have screwed up somewhere.
So, here are the reasons I think it may have died, but I really have no clue...
1. Maybe I have the wires in the wrong order. Would that cause it to die? (if so, I could use a diagram)
2. I sprayed WD-40 into the plug-end of the wires, so I could slide the boots down and check the connections and test for spark. Could the WD-40 on the plug wires and connectors on the plug ends be causing it to die?
The plugs I have them in
