2003 malibu 3.1 liter plug wire routing?

6 posts in this topic

I recently purchaced a 2003 malibu and it started to run poorly. I found that the rear wiring group fell against the exhaust manifold and melted through plug wire #1. Right where the plastic clip hold all of the wires together. Also on this clip is a metal bracket, not attached to anything. Where is it supposed to mount to? I don't want to melt anymore plug wires.

Thanks

If its the large metal braket with two mounting holes it goes onto the two studs that the coil bracket bolts to on the back side of the motor (the studs are bolted into the head) near the firewall.

If its the small metal bracket it mounts to the coil bracket where it bolts to the intake on the side closest to the drivers side.

My guess is this happened when the intake gasket was replaced.

good call- the intake gasket was recently replaced before I bought it. Yeah, like those don't go out very often on that motor! frown.gifgrin.gif.

      Was wondering what the ice conditions are after the rain on Monday?

      I use my 1660 Lund Pro-V Tiller for fishing Superior all of the time. I have 2' of track on both sides to hold my 4 aluminum rod holders and my triple trees. If you start using magnum dipsys with the ring they can pull hard enough to break most plastic rod holders. In the spring you are basically fishing the top 15' with plugs so any rod holder will do. Once you start trying to get to 40' and beyond is when you need to beef things up. I also have a mast and use the single big boards that Marine General sells for getting a good spread with you plugs. Once summer rolls around I will use Yellow Birds with 5 colors of lead on the outside  and dipsy's with 65lb Power Pro or steel depending on what depth I am trying to achieve to pull spoons or flies.

      I see that the Royal Dutchman website had a blurb a couple days (2/17) ago that said nothing was happening yet, they also don't know how thick the ice is.  As usual hoping for a long spring season before it closes for walleye.  On a positive note most of the snow must have already melted with the record warmth so maybe won't be so much to cause runoff later on?
