Is this an engine replacement? Are we talking about the wiring harness or ignition wires. A little more info would help. Assuming this is the wiring harness and you're hooking up the same engine the car originally came with, and also assuming that the wires were disconnected correctly and not cut or ripped out, it should be pretty straight forward. Each connection has a different sort of plug so its almost impossible to get them mixed up. With good lighting and patience, simply take the connections one at a time and figure out where they came from. Lay them loosely in place, don't actually connect them until you have them all figured out in case you need to reroute wires along the way. The connections are sensitive and the less times they are put together and taken apart and put together again the better. When you do connect them, make sure they are clean and they engage properly. Finally do a double check on the wiring to make sure it is not pinching, rubbing, or resting against the exhaust. I do have a detailed step by step "how to R & R a Cobalt engine" written by GM engineering somewhere in my archives. I might be able to find it if you need it. Good luck with your project.
