Ignition - no spark

Hi, i've got a nice detective's case for you! After replacing the head gasket and timing belt I have no spark on any of the ignition leads, suspected the coil pack but swapped it with a friend who has the same came and the coil pack was fine. My mechanic suggested i check for an earthing/grounding fault but all wires appear connected. Auto electrician suggested ignition module but #1 don't know it's location #2 i can't start the car to take it to them :) Any ideas??

    hey guys, YES! you were spot on, it was connected but not making proper contact. After spending hours on this i went over everything a few times and that's what i did. Although i got it sorted before your reply i'm impressed with your professionalism and experience! Thanks for the help and i'm sure i'll contact you with other issues that may arise. Thanks again, sirjoelan.

Did you ever get this problem resolved? I just did the same repairs. Replaced head gasket. Re assembled and no spark to plugs. Checked all fuses. All good. Checked plugs and wires, and cables... All good. O2 sensor is hooked up and camshaft position sensor is hooked up. Email me at Dmtguy2006@yahoo.com if you have found the solution. Thanks

Replaced head gasket now there's no spark,


Does anything work? It sounds like you have a flat battery which has gone flat due to the time it took you to change the head gasket.

No spark. No power to ignition system, disconnected wires to coils, disconnected or incorrectly seated spark plug leads, distributor cap off or not seated properly.

Motor not turning over. Flat battery, blown fuse, faulty start solenoid, faulty starter motor.

Vw code 16687


code refers to cylinder misfire no 3 cylinder detected==causes--spark plug--HT lead/s--injector--ignition coil--low compression-- wiring. Have a compression test done to check for engine head gasket/ valve faults first as it would be a waste of money to replace everything else to find that was the fault. Replace the coil then the HT lead ending up with the plug

Misfire detected by PCM at cylinder no 1


Hi there:

A code P0301 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

  • Faulty spark plug or wire
  • Faulty coil (pack)
  • Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
  • Faulty fuel injector
  • Burned exhaust valve
  • Faulty catalytic converter(s)
  • Running out of fuel
  • Poor compression
  • Defective computer


Possible SOlutions:

If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.

If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Did you have the head machined or checked for warpage?

Car will not start. It is getting fuel and has spark. It does turn over and tries to start but will not start.


If it is getting fuel (with good fuel pressure) and spark (blue), then your problem is either timing related which could come from a snapped timing belt, or compression related which could be due to a blown head gasket. In which case you would replace the timing belt or replace the head gasket respectively.

On a 1997 Dodge Stratus, 106,000 miles, just replaced timing belt and head gasket. Car idles rough but seems to run fine when driving down road.


You've replaced the timing belt as a prevention maintenance or it has failed? In case of failure was made also a valve job? Why changing the head gasket? Are the spark plugs and cables new? the answer will bw within these questions...
