Hi guys, I need your advice. My 2000 Bonneville started running bad, missing real bad. Last night I started it and popped the hood and I could see a big blue arc from the wire boot to the bolt holding down the 3/6 coil pack. Do you think that means a faulty coil pack or something else? Jim
Pull the wire off and inspect the coil. Do you see anything that looks like a scratch? If so, that'* a carbon trace. Replace the coil. If not, pick up a new set of plug wires and change them all out, but change them one at a time so you get everything back the right way.
Thanks guys, I pulled the boot last night and it was full of alot of black dust, I cleaned that all up and the boot looked to be in good shape but still arced to the bolt head badly. I will take your advice and replace the coil and wires. Jim
