Changed plug wires today and!!!

On the top of the coil packs on my 2001 Gran Am when I took the plug wires off some of the probes(connections or whatever their called) were rusty dull looking and the some of the other ones were bright and shiny, why was that?

some of them were exposed to moisture. Are you the original owner of the car, if not there is no way to know the history.

No, not the original owner but we have owned the car since 2003. Never been in a flood, just normal driving. I am going to use fine sandpaper and clean the areas on top. That will be ok won't it?

if there is a rubber boot it should have a small amount of dielectric grease applied to it to prevent moisture entry.
