asked by on

do i need to drop starter to replace ignition module?

My car has an automatic transmission.

I believe all you will need to do is remove the ignition coil assembly(s), and then remove the module from the mounting plate. I don't believe that you should need to remove the starter to get to it. It's been a long time since I worked on a Corsica, so I don't recall from memory, but AllData's service procedure doesn't show that it should be necessary either. If you feel you could use a hand with it, contact a certified mechanic, like those available at YourMechanic.com.
