    Ignition coils cts 3.6

    Hello CADILLAC FORUMS users, I am new on this site, and im really hoping somebody could help me out!

    I have a 2005 3.6L cadillac cts, and I need to replace 3 ignition coils, are the ignition coils from the 3.2l, or the 2.8 the same as for the 3.6L?


    Thank you people!

    2.8 and 3.6 are basically the same engine. So parts like this are interchangeable.

    3.2 is a totally different beast, so they won't fit at all.

    Why do you need to replace three coils? What ones are causing problems? Did you try swapping them to another cylinder to see if the problem follows the actual coil, or stay at the original cylinder.

    What about swapping them all for Accel Super Coils, or MSD's, or.........?
    Any advantage going to aftermarket ?

    Re: Ignition coils cts 3.6

    Looking in from the front the 3 at the right side, it would be 3 on drivers side.

    So you don`t think I have to change those 3?

    The engine misses a lot, its shaking like crazy so my mechanic said those were the ones i needed to change, if i plug them out the engine doesnt even die, if i take one out of the other side, the engine dies right away!!

    More help is appreciated

    Thanks

    Re: Ignition coils cts 3.6

    Since all 3 problem childs are on the same side and the engine dies right away as soon as you unplug one of the three on the good side. Then my finger won't be point at the coil packs what so ever. Because, it appears that there is a timing issue with the driver side cylinders, which are even by the way, 2 4 6. 1 3 5 are on the passenger side.

    But just to be certain, swap all 6 coils to the other side. Right to left, and left to right. That is if you are able to do it yourself or with a friend who knows.

    There was an issue with the timing chains, it has 3 timing chains, but we already fixed that issue! So could it be the coils then?

    Or you could have clogged actuators. This would make your car shake.that was my problem...when you changed the timing chain, you should of maybe checked the actuators as well..they clog easily due to low oil levels.
