Success - Ignition Coil Installation

So I installed my first car part :) - HOAH! I know a ignition coil is easy to install but this is the first part I installed without any supervision or help. The only question I have is when I reattached the spark plug wires into the ignition coil ... they were very loose and came out on their own. I kept pushing them back in and held them there for a bit. Eventually they stuck and sat tight. So no problem anymore but I was wondering if theres anything I can use to not have that happen again.

My father uses Vaseline to ensure a good connection and a smooth fit. I was considering using this. What do you guys think? And where should it be used?

Re: Success - Ignition Coil Installation

Vaseline is petroleum based, will work, but I don't know the insulating qualities, I recommend dielectric grease, it's silicon based, has excellent insulation qualities, and will help prevent the boots from drying out. Out of our local auto houses, generally NAPA is the only one who will have it one the shelf, but you can order it from any of the auto suppliers. I actually recommend using it on any seal on an electrical connection as it will help prevent corrosion, minimizes dryout of the soft materials, and helps keep out contaminants such as moisture and dirt.
