You need to file, grind or chisel off the heads of the pins on the mounting bracket on the old coil so you can move it to the new one. Take a pic before removing bracket so you put it on right. Screws provided, not exactly a big deal. Have to buy online with store pick up to get online price. Kind of silly these days as you could use your smartphone from the parking lot to get the lower price.

Three stars is not bad - a good purchase if returning an engine to reliable, standard operation is what is needed. Why pay for drag-strip performance when this will do just fine? Be aware the old mounting bracket is needed to install the new coil. A small to medium bolt cutter works well to remove the rivets in the old bracket - new bolts come with the new coil.

Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Ignition Coil:

The only negative is customer must re-use stock brackets which are usually riveted together. Use a Dremel or grinding wheel to grind off the rivet heads, mount the new coil to the factory brackets using the supplied nuts and bolts, and installl the assembly in the stock location.

          Slapped this on a hard starting '85 S10 along with some new wires, the last two pieces to round out a tune up over several months. The truck used to take forever to start up, now fires up after a turn of the key. Wish I'd thought of replacing this sooner. And I thought it was normal for my old truck to take so long to crank, not any more.

                A:

                Hi Sumri, I'm glad to assist you! The three coil packs are located on the top of the passenger side of the transverse-mounted engine, in a special bracket. You have to remove the two spark plug wires from the top of the faulty coil pack. Remove the two mounting screws, using a 1/4-inch-drive ratchet and socket. You can locate or remove the ignition coil by pulling the coil straight upward off of the bracket.

              Does this coil also provide the timing pulse for the fuel injectors?

                Good question! No, it does not provide the timing pulse for the fuel injectors.

                If your ignition coil is going bad it can cause a misfire, a no start condition, bad gas mileage, and a rough idle.

                The car I worked on (1985 Monte Carlo 4.3 TBI V6) was not obvious either. Car would start cold but when engine warmed up, coil would heat up likewise & car would shut down and would not restart until cooled.

                I had seen this same type of failure before where a spark plug breaking down caused the same failure. Replaced plugs, Didn't work. The coil was the last thing I could think of after checking wires, rotor button, and distributor cap.

                I then restarted the car and minutes later, the failure occurred again. Desperate, I decided to remove the coil completely from the bracket and put it on a ice-gel pack wrapped in a terrycloth towel where it cooled down and the car started and kept running longer than the time between normal failure until the ice-gel pack defrosted. We gambled on the coil and it solved the problem.

                Even though long screws and nuts come with the new coil, on a GM 4.3 V6, I would recommend loctite on the nuts due to engine vibrations that engine was know to have.

                My failing ignition coil was not obvious. There was an occasional backfire on start up - it would be just one pop, and then the engine would be difficult to start.
                Once started, the engine would run, but there would be barely perceptible shuddering; enough to know the engine was not running right.
                Acceleration to interstate speeds was poor with noticeable sputtering.
                The problem became obvious on seeing the occasional arc from the coil to the engine block, but that was not seen until the engine was idling with the hood open at the beginning of troubleshooting the poor performance.

                Part number E46Z is an original replacement part, made exactly like the factory makes them. The other part number is a premium part, meaning in most cases that it is better than the original and that explains the price difference.
