Oops. Check your work and see if you disconnected something.

Everything is intact and connected all fuses are hot but connection for coil pack is not. Can't figure out why.

And coil pack is brand new

If everything was correct the engine would run. Since I can't see it and don't know what you did, you will have to double check your work. Good Luck!

Went over it with a fine toothed comb and everything is correct and connected. The coil pack is only thing not hot, thought it was the problem so went and got brand new one installed it but it is still cold. This is the only thing we can find that's wrong and that is no where near everything we had to remove for the freeze plugs. I just need some suggestions as to why the coil pack is not hot. Been working on this for 2 1/2 days and I need to get this taken care of I have to get back to work and is my only transportation.
