it depends on what kind of 6 cylinder but it can be the module the coil packs or the distributor It's on a '96 V-6 Pontiac Firebird. I'm thinking it could involve the ECM or an injector could not be pulsing. But how do I check and fix both?? I changed my coils on my 98' Camaro three times, they run about $35.00, the number 5 and 6 cylinder coil should be the last one when looking under the hood right over the right valvecover.

If you have changed all the Plugs, wires and coil pak then look at the fuel injector on that cylinder. Might be a good idea to replace them all. Should clear it up. My 99 B3000 had the same problem.
