Can I use a Duralast / Coil - Ignition for a 2000 Deville or is ACDelco a must.

Dollars to doughnuts the coil pack is made by the same manufacturer as many other brands......rebranded for aftermarket use. BUT.....You have to have access to the actual item in order to search for the "Made in China" disclaimer.

For the long run, go with ACDelco or Delphi. (but there have been glitches..witness the Mexican vs. Japanese Crankshaft Position Sensor flaps.)

You can use whatever you want, but be wary of imposters! Just because you can buy it cheaper does not mean it will perform as well or offer the same kind of warranty that you would expect if you were to pay the few extra dollars for the AC Delco branded part. It will be much easier to receive warranty service under an AC Delco branded part than the "Made in China" imposter unless you are on very good terms with your local privately owned parts house.

The part is from advance auto parts. One year warranty through them. I am going to run with it. I let you know how it turns out.
