The guy who checked for spark, took the wires off, and got zapped hard on every one, except the #3. Also, upon doing the diagnostic, the #3 was misfiring, so, this seemed consistant.
ChuckiC4 took 1 coil pack off the '96 SE and replaced the #3 / #6 coil pack on the '97 SSEi, and the check engine light went off, and the car runs good again.
He is planning to replace all 3 coil packs, and probably the ICM as well. Do you guys suggest a specific brand? or should we get OEM? Where do you guys buy your coils? Is there a good source for good prices on good parts?
Thanks for the advice, and for helping us get this Bonne up and running again. I can't tell you what a relief it is to see him happy again.
