My 'service engine soon' light went off last week and the code says cylinder 2 misfired. I'm gussing I may need a new coil. I'm slightly above novice as far as my experience level goes. From what I've read it should be a simple thing to change.
Now for my questions. How do I locate Cyl #2? Finally, I'm looking for a good repair manual for this car since I plan to do more work on it. Do you know of any good manual?
I don't know on your motor which is #2. I would guess, passenger side, second one from front to back. This is purely a guess. The wires may be numbered on the wire themselves.
As far as repair manual goes, Haynes or chiltons is pretty good. I have heard several people say that a factory service manual is the best, but I have never personally owned one.
Pass Side Is From Front To Back #1,2,3,4. Drivers Side #5,6,7,8.
It May Be Your Spark Plug Causing The Miss. Much Cheaper To Try Than An Coil. Just Make Sure That You Use Compreesed Air To Blow Out The Spark Plug Hole Before You Remove The Plug Or Else Debris May Fall Into Your Cylinder. You Can Also Switch The Coil To Another Cylinder And See If The Miss Moves To That One.
