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.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow
