look at the build date of my car. they could have released it as a 97 cause of how early it was built and more than likely it has alot of 97 parts

Yea I was going to put that in there too, but that is actually shown on top of the coil pack, or should be there atleast (it's on both of the ones I've had).

i stated i could find the order for the coil pack but needed to know the engine cyl#'s and you guys got it. the car is up and running but of course not everything works. i have a rattle now over on the side corner where the idler pulley is but can't tell if it is the pulley or internal like the rockers maybe. and i can't figure out why my speedometer won't work tach works and every thing else but no speedo??? WTF I don't get it. This car is about to have a new owner if it don't start acting right. I hate to trade it but i'm to that point right now Oh and the stupid radiator fluid tank decides to spring a leak too!!!!!!!!!
