Is there anyone in the Kitchener-waterloo area that has a 2000 STS that could help me out?

Really anywhere between here and Toronto I would be happy with.

I have a 2000 STS with a "misfire on cylinder 4"
I replaced the spark plugs and sparkplug boots, and the valve cover gasket(s) hoping it was the oil, or the plugs. I did not replace the plugs with OEM ones cause they want $17 each for them, but NGK platinum plugs instead.

I just wanted to borrow someone's coil pack for a few minutes to see if the problems goes away before I spend $600 on a new one. It's the 2000, so all 4 coils are in one package.

Thanks.

Not quite in Canada, but www.rockauto.com has ACDelco 41-987 Platinum plugs and the DELPHI coil cassettes, with or without ICM, for a lot less than your prices. There must be a way to get them to you.

Most Northstars have an oil weep or two at the plug well O-rings. Not a cause for cam cover gasket replacement.

At least the miss is in the front (gray) bank.

I am in the area but unfortunately I don't have your setup. But my recommendation (as anybody else) would be AC Delco; I had HORRIBLE experience with Bosch, HORRIBLE, don’t know about NGK but I do know these engines for some reasons like AC Delco ONLY.
Sub, we here in Canada pay sometimes double for the same thing, is just how things are - smaller market. Bought from Rockauto.com + shipping + brokerage fee + TAX + USD-CAD conversion commission, yup the price is about that.

I was considering a somewhat more underhanded form of delivery...........

Waterloo is only about 1 hr from Jake in London, who is a forum sponsor and Northstar mechanic.

He posts under 97Eldo .... why not shoot him a pm?

I get a lot of parts from RockAuto and even with the conversions I still save a lot of money. I just placed a $925 US order with them two days ago.

Hacker 720 - if you can make it out to my shop you've got a free coil cassette. It's used but it fired every cylinder. I'll help you install it if you like.

Go man!
You will see the Cadillac heaven, almost had tears on my eyes when I pulled in, rarely you see so many Cadillacs in one place.
