Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace an ignition coil on this 2003 Chevy Monte Carlo with the 3.4 liter V6 engine. The only items you'll need is a new ignition coil from 1AAuto.com, a 7/32 inch socket, and ratchet.

On these V6 engines, you have three ignition coils back here and you want to mark the wires with a separate marking on the two attached to the ignition coil. You're going to remove and then disconnect those two wires. These markings will just help remind you where they were, and then you want to remove this 7/32 and this 7/32 bolt.

Once you remove those bolts, you want to just lift it up carefully off of the prongs and then pull it free. On the left is the old ignition coil; on the right is the new one from 1A Auto. You can see they're identical, and they'll fit exactly the same. Take your new ignition coil, and we mark the numbers on it so I've matched our old one. You want to put those slots down onto those prongs right there, so carefully lower it down onto those prongs and then tighten up those bolts. Now, reconnect your spark plug wires, making sure you're putting them in the right spot, and then you're all set.

We hope this video helps you out. Brought to you by www.1AAuto.com, your source for quality replacement parts and the best service on the Internet. Please feel free to call us toll-free, 888-844-3393. We're the company that's here for you on the Internet and in person.
