Cylinder Identification and Wire Routing GM 3.4L

Cylinder Identification and Wire Routing GM 3.4L

In this video I'll go over the firing order, cylinder identification, and ignition wire routing for a GM 3.4L V-6 (VIN E). The firing order is 123456. This is the order in which the cylinders are fired, not to be confused with the lay out of the ignition coils. It's a very common mistake to rout the ignition wires incorrectly during wire replacement. If your vehicle is running roughly after performing this task then check your wire routing using this video. Chances are that you may have a couple wires routing incorrectly.

GM 3400 / 3100 3.1 3.4 Engine Misfire Cause & Causes Miss Missing P0303

GM 3400 / 3100 3.1 3.4 Engine Misfire Cause & Causes Miss Missing P0303

Here is a video for fellow GM 3400 & 3100 liter engine owners. Have a misfire? This video explains the causes for what could be causing the problem. Mine showed up as a P0303 cylinder 3 misfire. Couldn't figure it out, but finally did. The spark plug and wire were replaced along with a new coil. Could hear the injector firing with a stethoscope but still had the miss. Found out after tearing into the intake that the lower intake was cracked. If your car is missing out, first try the following. Check for spark and check the spark plug, wire and coil. A test you can do if it randomly misses is in the dark, spray a mist of water around the plug wires. If you see blue arcing, you've found the problem. But be careful not to zap yourself, IT HURTS! If the spark is good the listen at the injector. Is it firing and clicking? If not, you've found the problem. If both those seem good, then check for compression. Do this with a compression tester available at any Autozone with the loan a tool program for @$40. If all 3 of those check out then it's a possible vacuum leak. May be time to do an intake manifold gasket repair as they are known to go out. But, if you do have to do an intake manifold gasket fix, go ahead and replace the head gaskets too. You'll be glad you did. Not fun taking it all back apart again. Check out my youtube channel for these videos both on doing the lower intake manifold gasket and the head gasket.

The engine ignition remain the same for the "ODD FIRE" Buick engine 3.8 liter,turbocharge and non turbocharge. Computer-Controlled Coil Ignition (C3I) The C3I system is used on V-6 engine built by Buick. The basic system contain a coil pack, an ignition module, and hall-effect sensor to determine crankshaft and camshaft position. These are three different C3I types, each of which can be identified by the shape of the coil pack. Type 1 - This version has all three coils molded into a single pack. If one coil malfuntions, the entire coil pack must be replaced. This system is used on 1984 and later turbocharged 3.8 liter V-6 engine with sequential fuel injection (SFI). Type 2 -  this version is similar to type 1, but each of the three coils is separate and can be replaced individually. This system is used on some 1986 and later 3.8 liter SFI V-6 engines. Type 3 - The coil pack of a type 3 system is similar to, and can be interchanged with, a type 1 coil pack. The module differs electronically, however, and the connector plugs are not compatible with components from other systems. The type 3 system is used on 1988 and later 3300 and 3800 V-6 engines. Direct Ignition System (DIS) Although DIS and C3I system operate similarly, they differ in at least one regard. In DIS, a reluctance sensor, or magnetic pickup, senses crankshaft position. This sensor is installed in the side of the engine block next to the crankshaft pulley. The 1993-97 3.1 liter engine (VIN M) and the 1996-97 3.4 liter engine (VIN E) use both a reluctance and hall-effect crank sensor.Computer-Controlled Coil Ignition (C3I) The C3I system is used on V-6 engine built by Buick.

its a very easy process so you shouldn't have any troubles. im giving you everything I used to do the job. if I can do it anyone can. I used ngk plugs with no anti seize grease.
