My Neon shut down and it would not start.

I check the spark plug to see if the coil was sending the spark plugs and I did not see any spark when I try to strart the engine.I check if the coil was getting any elec. and of the three wires inserted to the plug only the middle one has current. I want to know how many wires of the three wires on the plug supose to have electricity, Bottom line I want to know if it is the coil or not

1997 Chevy Silverado will not start replaced fuel pump also replaced spider injectors. Call shut down while driving

Does the engine have spark to the spark plugs? Is there 12 volts to the coil and is the coil being triggered on the ground side? Check to see if the coil is sending spark to the distributor. Several more things to check that will not let the truck start. Check these and get back with me and I will help you more if needed. Good luck.

1985.2 Porsche 944 has no spark

I would take a hair dryer and start to blow dry the coil, all the electrical wires that are attached to the ignition system, is a 12v tester to check primary circuit ( clip the coil + and touch the ground to see if you have elec flow, touch the frame of the car ) if it lit up then I would take the coil to have your mechanic check out if the coil is ok. Then get one of those spark plug wire ignition tester, it just clip on to the ignition wire and turn the motor, just test all 4 wire just to make sure, then the last thing to check is spark plugs, u can remove them but have them rest touching the engine block, turn it over n u shud get sparks going, o/w is the plugs, just replaced them is only like 10-12 bucks each.

Why wont it start

Yes, it could be. The crank sensor is responsible for a lot of jeeps not getting spark. First check if the green/black wire to the coil has voltage with key on. That is the primary current to coil. If voltage there, it could be the crank sensor. If no voltage to coil with key on, then problem is that computer is not sending power to the coil. That will have to be checked-there is a relay involved-the Automatic Shut Down relay in the under hood fuse-relay box.

01 aurora 3.5 changed intake gaskets and now no spark. Ran when I started took checked all plugs and re gaped checked all fuses checked all elec con. Any idea?

Check your coil connection. That is where you are getting your spark in the first place. Start there. Maybe the coil plug is not connected, or the wiring leading to the coil became loose. I hope you didn't disconnect the wiring sequence because if you did to make the job easier then you will need to get the firing order to make the spark work on time with the engine. I hope this helps. GE

The car is a 1999 plymouth neon the spark coming out of the plug is weak and yellow engine will turn over but wont start it is getting enough fuel and replaced the plugs

check the spark output at the coil. If there is still weak spark than make sure there is 12 volts to the coil. If there is than the coil is probably bad.

Also make sure the engine is turning over properly. If the battery is low or the starter is drawing to many amps than there may not be enough power left over to deliver enough spark from the coil.

Vehicle began shutting down when braking after a recent fuel up from "E", to half a tank. The next day when started, it was stalling, and only allowed me to reach 20mph. After about 100 ft., the...

Three things to check: Coil pack (the main box that spark plug wires connect to), Spark plugs and wires, that's not what's it, your fuel pump is gone. Definitely would get a fuel pump either way due to stalling of the car and possible excess air and a coil pack as well do to a malfunction reading with the emissions module causing the spark plugs to lose energy all at once which then can lead to the coil pack going bad and sending false emission rate timings threw the fuel management system causing the fuel pump to have the sensor go bad. This happened to me as well. Same exact thing. After I did those fixes, car was like I have never driven a true Audi till that day I changed the coil pack and fuel pump. Eventually to be safe I got all new 4+ Bosch spark plugs and wires just to prevent and imbalances. Changes your car into a pure German luxury mobile.

Okay, thanks for reply's more info...maybe you can help

the valve cover seals like to leak and fill up the spark plug tubes with oil. so 1st thing, you should pull the spark plug boots to check, the pull and inspect the spark plugs.

pull spark plug boot off of the #1 spark plug. Insert a new spark plug into the spark plug boot. Ground the plug to the engine.
Crank the engine and look for spark across the electrodes of the spark plug.


then reconnect the boot the the #1 plug, pull the boot off of the #2 plug repeat the test, then do #3 and #4.

if all cylinders have no spark/ weak spark, its most likely a bad coil pack.

to check the coil pack:
Measure the primary resistance of each coil. At the coil, connect an ohmmeter between the B+ pin and the pin corresponding to the cylinders in question. Resistance should be 0.45 - 0.65 ohm.
Measure the secondary resistance of the coil between the towers of each individual coil. Secondary resistance should be
11k - 14k ohms
