164 3.0 24v v6 need wiring info/help

Hi
I have a 164 as per the title and it has a wiring issue with the coilpacks.
Basically one of the front coilpacks is not getting a signal to fire so I started to trace the wiring fron the coils and injecyors only to find it goes to the rear of the motor before returning to the plug near the rear of the front head.
Was going to pull the plenum and rear cover off to trace the wire and hopefully find the break and fix it but was wondering if someone had a wiring diagram they could post or e-mail me of the injector and coilpack wiring as this would/could save me a lot of time trying to fix it.
It is getting real annoying driving around on 4 to 6 cyls as the problem comes and goes when it feels like it.
Thanks in advance

Hope this helps. The wiring harness for the spark plugs is a common replacement item. I do have some in stock if needed.

Sounds like a bad ignition module

located just under the airbox on the 24V car, there are two of these, and if one is failing, or the connection to it is dodgy, gives exactly the symptom you describe. I would check the connections there first, clean them up, etc and then swap the connectors to see if the problem moves (module dodgy) or stays on the same cylinder (wiring) -- also check the big circular connector and clean that up too
