            A:

            Hi J! We strive to have all of the information available to our customers when shopping on our website. There are times when the manufacturer does not provide all of the information a customer may require. In this case, even BWD does not have the bolt size listed. However, I found that the GM Bolt # 10470758 replaces the bolts in the BWD Ignition Coil - Part No. E51P. For further assistance, please call BWD directly at (718) 729-4357 and they would be in a better position to help you.

        • Q:

          I have a 2003 buick century 3.1l that has coded out for 2 cylinders not firing. I pulled off the wires at the coil 1 at a time and found one of the coil tips totally rusted out (# 2 & # 5 cylinders). The other coils when I removed the wire changed the way the engine ran except for the one with the rusted tip. Is that sufficient enough to say that is the only bad coil on the car?

            A:

            Testing procedures for an ignition coil: 1. Disconnect the output wire of the distributor ignition coil from the distributor cap with the ignition switch in the "off" position. 2. Connect a spark plug to the disconnected output wire of the ignition coil. 3. Attach a wire to the threads on the spark plug to serve as a ground wire. 4. Remove the ground wire of the distributor ignition coil. 5. Connect one end of the wire you removed to the negative terminal of the ignition coil. 6. Turn the ignition switch to the "on" position. 7. Touch the remaining end of ignition coil ground wire to the negative battery terminal or another grounding spot several times, tapping lightly. You should see sparks at the same frequency of the wire contacts. The primary coil should produce readings between 0.7 and 1.7 ohms.

          • CUSTOMER CARE

            A:

            With reference to your inquiry on the BWD Ignition Coil -part# E51P, isolate the negative battery cable. You need to disconnect the ground cable from the negative terminal of the battery. You should also set the emergency or parking brake as an additional safety feature. Locate the IDI/ICM pin and disconnect it from the harness connector. Separate the ignition coil and the ignition coil module assembly from the engine. Detach the housing cover retaining screws and remove the cover. Remove the ignition coil, the seal and the contacts from the cover. Replace the old seals with new seals and lubricate the connection with petroleum jelly. Insert the new ignition coil. Reassemble the engine components. Make sure you put the connections back in the proper place of the car. For any further assistance, please feel free to call us at: 1-877-238-2623 or visit the nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our Parts Pros will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.
