Default Coil packs

I need to replace a coil pack on my son inlaws 02 sc1. I have a spare coil from a 94 sl2. When I check the parts store catalog it says it takes the same coil from 91 to 02. My spare will not fit because the tab on the end is not right. The 02 has a tab and the 94 has a slot. I could cut the plastic off and make it fit. I dont' want to try this unless I am sure the coil is wired correct. I can buy a new one at carquest for $60 or on ebay for about $25.

Thanks DAn

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I can't tell you 100%, but I believe there is a difference between the coil packs on OBD1 ('91-'95) and OBD2 ('96-'02) cars.

Default Re: Coil packs

The coils aren't "wired" in a particular way. They get the signal from the ignition module, and create a high-voltage spark on the two towers.

The ignition modules changed over the years, but according to getsaturnparts.com, the coil remained the same '92-'02.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
