It's a tough call, but the one we did a couple of months ago, had a bad computer. It would run good for a few minutes, and then start running rough, as if there was a load being placed on the engine. Then of course, it would cough and die. Have you checked the ignition module? It's the plate that the coils sit on, that has the wires connected to it. Most junk yards sell the complete coil pack (mount, ignition module and both coils) for 25-35.00 $.

If you lost the keys to your 1968 Chevy truck how do you get keys for it?

Replacement parts and keys can be bought from custom or restoration websites and catalogues. I suggest getting a matched door and ignition set. The link provided is for Rock auto, I use them for some Jeep stuff, it is a place to start. Otherwise a locksmith can rekey some locks, and a good one can reconstruct a key from the cylinder, but those options are all more expensive than just replacing the ignition cylinder and lock cylinders.

How do you replace the ignition coil on a 1991 Chevy Cavalier?

There are two ignition coils on a 91 Cavalier. There are both mounted on the back of the engine block (firewall side). While they are difficult to reach, they can be removed & replaced in about an hour to hour and a half. A small mirror with an extension handle is helpful for getting your bearings on the two small mounting screws on each coil. Be sure and keep the spark plug wires marked so they can be put back in the right place for the firing order

If one cylinder head is cracked will the other be cracked also?

no, usually u will only crack one at a time but on the flipside, depending on the engine, by the time you tear down all the ignition/injection/intake stuff you might be better off just removing the other head and getting it checked out and replacing the head gasket so you don't regret it a few thousand miles later...

Why am I not getting any spark from my coil even after replacing it with a brand new one on a 1986 B2000?

Turn key on. Check for power getting to coil. Check all wiring for good connections. If OK, your problerm is most likely in your ignition system. In other words, it's not telling your coil to fire so it's not.

Overheating. Getting a thing called pre-ignition. This is when the engine fires on a cylender before the sparkplug is suppose to fire.
