The wires are different - HEI ignition wires won't work in a standard distributor - they all go in the same relative places though.

The ignition coil is integrated with the distributor cap, they are one unit. On 3.3 Litre at least, probably the other engines too. If there's no coil wire to the distributor (should look the same size as the spark plug wires) then it's a good indication that the distributor is also the coil.

How do you change the plugs wires distributor cap and rotor on a Chevy s10 2.2l 4-cylinder 5 spd?

Remove the old distributor cap from on top of the distributor but do not disconnect any plug wires. Push it aside. Remove the old rotor and install a new one. Then install the new distributor cap. Remove the plug wires from the old cap one at a time and plug then into the new cap in the same locations as they came off the old cap. Go around in a circle until all the old plug wires are plugged into the new cap. Discard the old cap. Now remove one plug wire from the new distributor cap and the corresponding spark plug, and choose a new wire the same length. Install that wire on the spark plug and connect the other end to the distributor. Repeat the process on all plug wires until all the old ones have been removed and replaced. Do not get them mixed up. By doing them one at a time you will have no problem.

If the engine is EFI you must unplug the 4 wire plug behind the distributor before starting. Then rotate the distributor while using a timing light to the correct position. If the engine is NON EFI then you must unplug the vaccum line from the distributor and adjust the same way. You should plug the line off to avoid a high idle situation as well..
