Sisters car, yours lists a 4.6, but you posted to the 3.8, talk about coil packs, I think we need a wee bit more information.

This covers a 94 with a 4.6...

Go to www.autozone.com, enter in real car info (YEAR, make, model, actual engine (3800, 3.1, ...) then go to the Specifications->Ignition (tune-up)->Firing Order and you might find it.

A 1994 with a 3.1 is:

The firing orders for the 1993 Buick Century engines are:


3.3 Liter engine firing order is 1-6-5-4-3-2 on this engine the #1 cylinder is closest to the FRONT of the car and closest to the belt (passenger's side of the car) Put another way, it is front right corner of the engine when viewed from driver's seat.

All this information is from page 20-4 of the 1986-1993 Chilton's Auto Repair Manual.

What is the firing order for a 1993 Buick Skylark 3.3L V6?

According to Haynes Manual for Buick, Pontiac and Olds, all V6s have the following timing order.

1-6-5-4-3-2





EDIT:

According to my info., the Buick v6 3.3 liter engine was available from 89 thru 93.

It appears the firing order is the same on all 3.3's for those years
