Spark Plugs and Wires

Why would you not be getting a spark after replacing the ignition coils and spark plug wires on a 91 Chevy Cavalier 2.2 liter 4 cylinder?

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 $.

I'm wondering if a locksmith is capable of getting your ignition lock cylinder to rotate to the on/run position so the ignition lock cylinder release can be depressed to remove it ? I'm also wonderering what they would charge for that service, because I was charged $30.00 and taxes to open my door lock on my house.

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.

A few things you can check is to take a DMM and check your plug wires for excessive resistance. something else you can do is check to see if you even have power getting to your ignition module to power the coils.
