The ignition module on these is on the passenger side of the engine's front corner.

It has six ignition wires coming out of it and these are the 'coils' that fire the spark plugs.

The ignition module is under this bank of coils, mounted to the coil pack.

In general, mark the ignition wires and coil pack so you know where to reconnect them, then remove the main wire harness connector. I think there are two fasteners, 6 or 8mm at each end of the connector. as you loosen these screws the connector will back out of its environment seal, dont force the removal until the screws are fully disengaged.

The module should then have some peripheral fasteners to remove it from the firewall.

Take the module complete to your friendly local auto parts store (FLAPS) and have them test it for free before you pony up for replacing it. Brace yourself for the cost.

Salvage yards have these for much less but at greater risk.

Sometimes the module has a thermal gasket/seal it is important to install this correctly to seal the electronics and heat sink the coil pack for maximum life.

The fastest way is to start disconnecting the negative battery terminal, remove the cooling fan which is held by four self threaded screws, remove the three connectors in the module and then take it down removing the three bolts that hold it to the engine block.

What is the fastest and easiest way to change the ignition module on an '89 Buick Century 2.5 liter engine?

There are no shortcuts for this job. The ignition module is located on the iginition coil pack. The coil pack is located on the engine block on the firewall side. Just follow the plug wires down to the coil pack, it is in a tight space. Feel around and find the 10 mm bolts holding the coil pack on. Take off and mark the plug wires so you know how they go back on. After you get the bolts out and it is loose watch out there is a black tube that fits into the engine it is about three inches long, if the tube has a crack in it replace it, this is the crank position sensor. Replace just like you took it off.
