No I can not select range; it is auto ranging. This is the same digital multi- meter that read properly my original coils. Before I started this effort.

I do have an analog multi-meter. As you can sense on multi meter use I am not as good as I would like to be.

Thanks again for your response. This vehicle has been not operable since 2-28-09.

OK, the over limit is infinity in this case. The coils are more then likely no good.

Could I damage other components by installing this salvage coil pack / Ignition module (coil ohms OL) and cranking it as advised by the salvage yard? My thoughts are if the item is out of specification it may be a wasted effort; but I am not experienced in this issue.

Is it possible this salvage lower ignition module may be good and I could pair it with the new Acdelco coil pack that I have not yet used.? The yard really wants me to use their part as a unit and I understand that reasoning.

Thanks again for your helpful response.

Should cause no damage, it'* simply a open circuit.

Thanks.

So if I go to the effort and install this coil/ ignition module; and the my ohms reading are correct, the car should probably not run as there would be no spark? Is this a correct assumption?

Thanks

I purchased a new Acdelco ignition module D11922A.

I've seen some comments about needing to use some heat sink grease on the bottom of the module'* metal case. Is this necessary and required? If so how much of the heat sink grease is required.

The base of the OE ignition module I removed seemed clean and did not appear to have any grease on the bottom of it.

Please advise.

Thanks.
