I don't recommend this method as I have nuked a coil pack or two from trying to diagnose things this way.

As for the raw fuel issue, you won't shoot enough raw fuel into the cylinder to contaminate oil by having the wire off for a few seconds.

A friend has a 96 Buick GS Regal with the 3800 Series II(Non Supercharger)

He called me up and had me stop by to look at his car; it was knocking like the world was going to end!!!
Long story short, the harmonic balancer was bad, and the car knocked and ran awful!!
Remove-Replace, all is well.

Sorry to hear about your car. If you get lucky, you can find a junkyard engine.
Some junkyards even can do the install for extra $$$

Remember at least you know your Bonnie'* history. Replacement may be better than looking at an "unknown" beater, which may blow up 300 feet down the road.

Good Luck!!
