Having problems with your 2006 GMC Canyon ?

Broken spark plug coil bolt

\015 While I was changing the spark plugs in my 2006 GMC Canyon, one of the spark plug coil bolts broke while I was tightning. Replacing the coil bolt is no problem but how to remove the broken end looks complicated. Any suggestions?\015

If it is broken off below the surface you will have to try to drill it and use an easy out tool. And it may be frozen in the threads which is why it broke with you.

I have a 2002 Saturn Vue 2.2L. I thought I needed to replace the timing chain. When we took it apart, we realized that the bolt on the timing chain tensior had snapped off and went into the head. So, we replaced the timing chain tensior, timing chain, the head, all the gaskets. New spark plugs, and a coil pack modular. Now, when we put everything back together, it wont start. When we take the piece that the spark plugs go into, out and turn it upside down, i have spark, but when I put it back in

I have a 91 ford mustang 2.3L 4 cyl that started running like **** today. It sounds like it's on 3 cylinders. I checked the spark from the plugs to the ignition coils. Of the 8 only 3 were sparking on the rear coil. I switched the power plugs on the coils and managed to get spark on 2 plugs from each coil. Is this more likely a computer issue than a coil issue? Do I need to replace both coils?

I have a 2004 BMW 545i. I'm currently working to remove all of the 8 spark plugs to check their condition. I'm unable to remove the ignition coils up and out of the spark plug holes on the two far rear spark plugs(#4 right side and #8 left side) because the clearance between the tops of those coils and the body of the engine compartment is too narrow; that is, the total clearance is shorter than the total length of the ignition coils. Could I possibly be overlooking a certain step/procedure or i

I have s 1983 Ford Ranger 4x4 2.3L. It was running down the road snd acted as if it ran out of gas. The spark plugs aren't getting spark. We have changed plugs,plug wires,distributor, there's more but all wires we've tested we ok. I was having trouble with the coil arcing off the frame, but was told the coil had been changed. Actually, I can tell it's the same coil so my question is, what would the main things we nref to test or check to fix the problem?


Is coil getting power,and sending power to the distributor? you can run a jumper from the positive battery post to the coil and check for spark, need to see if coil is good, you said it was arching off frame so it could be damaged. ... Ford Ranger
