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.

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
