comment Coil Pack Location
@robertlewis2001 - I suggest posting that as a separate question. Also, get a Chilton or Haynes manual for your vehicle.

comment Coil Pack Location
@Larry - Ah, I just noticed the stamp on the first pic. You're right. However, I imagine coil pack placement will likely be the same across most model years. I believe a friend of mine has a LeSabre of the vintage in question. Maybe I'll take a look under his hood if I get the chance soon.

comment Am I getting reamed? Looking for some automotive guidance.
This question seems fairly subjective and localized. What one considers a reasonable price for quality service may seem too expensive for another, and labor costs can vary between different regional markets.

comment How to identify parts needed for a repair?
This question seems a bit vague as it is. I think I understand what you're trying to get at, but could you edit it to be more clear and specific?

I think what I'm trying to get at is: Will SeaFoam and new gas, added pre-emptively, help prevent additional gum from the old gas from building up on the parts? On the other hand, could the SeaFoam make the "first start" more difficult on the engine?

@Patrick - Mind moving your comment to an Answer? The intermittent clicks are really the primary issue I'm trying to figure out - the rest of the stuff is just for background, in case it's relevant.

comment Reviving a vehicle that has been idle for a long time.
Thanks for the information. Would it be beneficial to add SeaFoam and a few gallons of fresh gas pre-emptively? Or should the SeaFoam only be used after a successful engine start?

@JayBazuzi - I'm hoping to leave this question open enough to be useful for many others, but in this particular case the vehicle has been sitting outside in Florida for about 9 months (June - March). It was not prepared for this, and probably has 1/4 tank or less of gas if I recall correctly.
