Question about 1994 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

Ignition timings Hello. I just replaced the spark wires on my 1994 Cavalier RS 2.2L 4 Cylinder. Problem is, I did it wrong. I didn't push hard enough on the ends that go into the ignition coil, and when i tugged on them to make sure they were tight, the wires for spark plugs 2, 3, and 4 fell off. I don't remember the positions the Originals were in, I replaced them the best I could. Currently (from Spark Plug to the Ignition coil), SP1 in in the first spot, SP2 is in the third spot, SP3 is in the second spot, and SP4 is in the fourth spot. Please help!

My 1994 cavalier lost spark to cylinders 1 and 4. Which components are directly related to ignition spark and timing? What about the camshaft sensor?


You listed all the components involved in spark timing and control- coil, ignition module, pcm, wires, plugs, crank sensor, and cam sensor.
Cylinders 1 and 4 have the same coil for both, so concentrate on that coil. You still have a good blue spark on cylinders 2 and 3? If you have spark there, I don't know about the cam sensor-I think it would be good if it works at all. You need to check if you have 12 volts power to the coil for 1 and 4.

I cannot find the spark plugs on my camry !!!


First, you didn't mention which engine your 1994 Toyota Camry is equipped with. (This is really MUST-KNOW information if you want help with fixing your car.) There is a 3.0L V-6 engine and a 2.2L 4-Cylinder engine. Two TOTALLY different animals! I'll just take the extra time to answer for BOTH of them....

If your Camry is equipped with a 3.0L V-6 engine, You cannot find the spark plug wires because there are none, That engine is equipped with Coil On Plug (COP) ignition. The coils on the left bank (the side of the engine near the radiator) are located under the plastic cover on top of the engine. The coils for the right bank (the side of the engine near the firewall) are located under the upper intake plenum. The plenum MUST be removed to access them. (this is also required to replace the spark plugs.)

If you have the 2.2L 4-cylinder engine, the wires run down the center of the valve cover and the boots go down through the valve cover to the plugs. The other end of the wires attach to the distributor cap at the rear (drivers side) of the engine.

If you are getting a misfire from cylinder #3 your check engine light should come on and read this code: P0303 which is Cylinder 3 Misfire Detected. Below I have listed what causes this and a few solutions that may help you out.

Causes:
- Improper spark plug at cylinder #3
- Insufficient compression at cylinder #3
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- The injector circuit is open or shorted at cylinder #3
- Fuel injector #3 may be faulty

Solutions:
- Perform Injector Service
- Replace Spark Plug #3
