2000 Chevrolet S10 Xtreme Ignition Coil Change Part 2

Due to the horrible weather the coil change is taking longer than I’d like, but it’s getting there!

To fit the aftermarket NAPA coil the factory rivets needed to be ground down to facilitate the removal of the old unit

Once removed I tidied the ground areas up and applied some paint to stop things from rusting and make things look a little better.

The Chevrolet S10 Xtreme Was Unwell

About two weeks ago the Chevy started to run a little rough and this had become worse ending up in a couple of breakdowns

I scanned the truck using the WiFi OBDII Wireless Dongle, using the Dash Command app on the Apple iPhone 6 Plus

No codes were found and all the diagnostics looked fine, but the truck would still stall out after about 4 miles and refuse to restart until cooled.

Luckily I had asked a friend to bring back some ignition components during a visit to the States after some previous issues, this meant I was able to swap out the coil.

(You may notice that the coil was made in Poland, so it’s had a long round trip back to Europe!!)

I have driven twelve miles in testing so far and all seems OK, I never like to have “cured” a fault without being 100%
