My Bonneville 3800 did the same thing. My brother-in-law (mechanic) told me to change the coil pack module (3 coils sit on top of it). I got a module from a wrecked 3800, put it in, engine runs beautifully!

What could cause a1991 suzuki samurai to have no fire from a new coil?


no spark from coil directly?
is the cam turning, is the dizzy rotor spinning. ????

check all fuses first. Ig-coil, FI and dome.
then using diagnostic jumper wire or fuse, (as approp)
crank engine look for code 41 o 42.!!!

USA cars , answers only
our cars are all EFI that year.
no engine swaps to Suzuki G16A/B sidekick or tracker engines.!
1: engine cranks
2: no spark
3: The ECu makes spark
the CMP sensor in the DIzzy , (never fails if rotor turns, does rotor turn, if not cam belt igored and now snapped.)
the cam turns. the CMP fires. the ECU takes this CMP signal
and fires the ignitor next to coil and the coil charges, and release and BAM spark.

that is it.
the ECU will tell you when the CMP dies or the Ignitor fails
why not ask it.
1: key on
2: diagnostic jumper in place (flashes 12s for ok)
3: crank engine,for 5sec, not 1 ,not 2.
3: release key not off.
4: see code 41, or 42, BINGO !@!!!!

My 91 accord has been giving me grief 4 months. Sure would appreciate any help - TX GREASEMONKEY, u have been on the mark b4, want to take a shot... Its my only transportation and has been down 4 a month....


When you say you have fuel, do you have normal fuel pressure at the injectors ? Because Honda cars are known for faulty fuel pump relays.
The relay stops powering the pump when it gets hot but will start back up when the relay cools off.

Number 2 and number 3 plugs is not fired i put a coral on the back side it begans to fire on all plugs but then it only last for so long and burns up the cords and i want to know why


a crank position sensor (CPS). They tell the computer the engine is spinning. The computer uses this info to fire the spark plugs and again to provide the engine fuel. When the CPS fails it will normally happen when going down the road. The engine will just quit.

After the engine dies just check for spark by removing the spark plug wires

2001 ford 4.6 liter idles rough sometimes dies


may need 1 0r more coil packs replaced,or it could be what happened to my 2000 4.6---1 lifter expanded out and wouldnt collapse,causing the rocker arm to fall out of place and the valve could never open...try unplugging 1 coil pack at a time while running and listen for a change in the way it runs,if there isnt a change then its probably a bad coil pack,find a cylinder that runs and swap the coil packs,if no difference then its probably the valve staying shut.

95 jeep grand cherokee died wont start,it cranks, checked fuel pump replaced filter cleaned injecters still nothing


Check to see if getting fire from coil or plugs. If not, your problem is most likely the Crankshaft Position Sensor.

$18 - $21 dollars. CPS is on left side of where transmission buckles to fly wheel, near top edge. One bolt and plugs in. (2 wires in plug)

Drive shaft to 4-wheel gear box might be in your way. No prob. 4 small bols and lower front end of drive shaft.

About a 45 - 60 minute job for shadetree mechanics, like myself, and 2 coffee breaks.

Prior syptoms of sensor going bad is engine rumbling real bad when coming to a stop, and sometimes dies but will start.

Hope this it.

1994 Toyota Camry Won't start.


you should check 3 things. AIr, Fuel, and "spark"
your cars could have many problems. Ignition module, fuel injectors, Mass Airflow Sensor.
You should check into all of these 3 things.
a crank-no start could be many things.
it could even be a cam positions sensors resistance going up when the engine heats up. Cracnk- no start means testing. n like i said
The motor is getting Air, There is Fuel being put into the cylinders, and the Spark plugs are firing.

1981 bmw 320i- motor turns over and briefly fires and then dies


make sure you have the right firing order for the spark plug wires from the disbutor to the spark plugs. thats the most common for motor turns over and briefly fires and then dies. try looking up the firing order for the spark plug wires.
