    Comments about BWD Ignition Coil:

    Replaced all three Ignition Coils in my 1994 Pontiac Gran Prix instead of testing for a bad one. I have 103,000 miles on the vehicle and after replacement the Power and pick-up was restored instantly and vehicle runs better than it has in a few years. The intermittent surging and hesitation that I was experiencing and was getting worse especially when moving on an incline has vanished.

        I NEEDED THREE IGNITION COILS THAT I HAD TO REPLACE ON MY CAR, AND ADVANCED AUTOS WAS THE ONE WITH THE MOST REASONABLE PRICES, FOR A GREAT PRODUCT. THE PRODUCT MADE THE PERFORMANCE WITHIN MY CAR RUN BETTER. WITHOUT THESE COILS MY CAR RAN BAD AND I APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT I COULD PURCHASE THESE PRODUCTS FROM ADVANCED AND BE ABLE TO AFFORD THEM. THERE AREN'T AND BAD THINGS THAT I CAN RELATE TO THAT PERTAIN TO THE PRODUCT THAT I PURCHASED NOR FROM THE USAGE THAT PERTAINS TO THIS PRODUCT.

          Comments about BWD Ignition Coil:

          We all know gm can be cruddy but, they did make a good spark sysetm. One of the stock coils died after 20+ years. Got this coil and It fixed it right up. the coil comes with everything you need exp new screws so take care not to lose the stock ones. It was simple and ez to install. Just make sure that you clean off the cpu mod. After that replace the rubber O rings and dab some Dielectric grease on it to keep it sealed and working for another 20 years. This coil worked like a champ. Some really cold days Like 10 below it still works great no problems with spark on start up.

              • Q:

                I have a 2002 Bonneville, 3.8 SE. Test shows #1 coil is bad-- how do I install and what is the probability that replacing the coil (for #1 &4 plug) will fix the problem? Sluggish and missing on slow speed incline and hitting 3rd gear passing. Sometimes misses after initial start of the engine. Otherwise, it runs fine.

                  A:

                  Hi Ranger! It is not necessary to replace all the ignition coils at one time. However, you will not harm anything by replacing them all at once, but it is a little wasteful to replace them all at once. The reason is being that there are no moving parts, or parts that wear out inside an ignition coil. It functions much like a light-bulb, in that it either works, or it does not. However, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it, nor provide you with a 100% answer. I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

                  A:

                  Hi Bob, glad to assist you! The BWD Ignition Coil (Part No. E51P) has HEI/DIS ignition coil terminals of steel or aluminum and it uses high efficiency laminations to optimize magnetic field build-up, to produce high spark energy. The BWD Select Ignition Coil (Part No. E51) use pure copper windings in both bobbins which creates a high temperature rating for improved durability and higher resistance to internal shorts and dielectric breakdown. The coil can run hotter without breaking down.

                  A:

                  Instructions: Take off the IDI/ICM harness connector. 2. Separate the ignition coil module assembly from the engine. 3. Uncover the housing by removing the fasteners that secure the housing cover to the housing. You can remove these with a screwdriver, wrench or ratchet and socket set. Once you have the cover off, disconnect the coil harness connector, the Grand Am ignition coil, the contacts and the seals. 4. Install the ignition coil and replace the engine components. 5. Label and disconnect the spark plug wires from the ignition coil. 6. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws that hold the ignition coil to the ignition control module. There should be two screws per ignition coil. 7. Pull out the old ignition coil and insert the new one. 8. Reassemble the parts, using the reverse order in which you dismantled them. For further assistance, please feel free to call us at 1-877-238-2623 or visit your nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our representatives would be more than happy to assist you.

                • A:

                  A coils ohms(resistance) can be measured, BUT it can still misfire. This happened to me after replacing my OEM coils with Accels. After 1 year and 1k ms. I was getting a misfire, and figured it must have been the plugs 'cause I just changed the coils & wires. When I switched wires and then coil positions, the problem followed that coil, even though it measured the correct ohms.
