Hi Guys,

I am putting in a new coil and have removed the 5 front bolts on the intake manifold but can't get it lose, I did not want to disconect anything else until I have it broken lose, in case I didn't it would be easy have redy to drive to work. Any ideas?????

Thanks Red

There are 2 bolts at the back of the manifold that hold it to a bracket so you need to remove them to lift the manifold up. Loosen the clamp at the t-body and slide the boot off. support the manifold with a bungee cord.

I thought it was said a new coil can be done WITHOUT taking the intake off. I looked at it, it should go?

You are right. The instructions are below.

(1) Disconnect the negative battery cable.
(2) Remove the throttle control shield (Fig. 17).
(3) Remove the throttle cables from the throttle
body lever (Fig. 18).
(4) Remove the throttle cable bracket and relocate
(Fig. 19).
(5) Remove the spark plug cables from the ignition
coil.
(6) Unlock and disconnect the electrical connector
from the ignition coil.
(7) Remove bolts from ignition coil. Twist coil to
remove 2 of the bolts (Fig. 20) from the coil before
removing it from vehicle.
Fig. 17 THROTTLE CONTROL SHIELD
Fig. 18 THROTTLE CABLES
Fig. 19 THROTTLE CABLE BRACKET
Fig. 20 IGNITION COIL BOLT
Pull coil up (Fig. 21) and out by the throttle

Faster to lift the manifold up r&r the coil and install the mainfold, 10 min. Takes longer to read the instructions.

I can do a stage I in less than 40 minutes(5speed). If I worked at a Chrysler dealer I do those all day long flat rate.
