With a volt meter,check for positive 12V on the coil.

Dear Phoebejanis: If your ignition coil is hot and you can get a spark coming off of the coil wire, the only thing I can suspect would be a problem with a bad rotor in the distributor. If the coil is delivering to the distributor but it travels no further, the energy must be dissipating somewhere. If a rotor has a short, the plug wires will never be delivered any spark.
Also a distributor cap with a missing carbon button which rides on the top of the rotor may be missing. I really cant think af any other things it could be.
If I have solved your problem, please let other's know by writing in, so they will learn, not to mention the ATTABOY's I might get.
Good luck.

SOURCE: how can you test the spark plug coils, what is the

Dear Pablo,
You can check the input voltage at each coil. This way you make sure you have the proper amount to operate. Disconnect the six ignition coil connections. Turn the ignition key on. Check the voltage at Cyl #1 B/Y wire, Cyl#2 B/U wire,Cyl #3 B/O, Cyl#4 B/G, Cyl#5 B/R, Cyl#6 B/W and ground. It should be 10.5V or higher. If not,you need to find the cause of the voltage drop.
If ok, you can test the resistance of each coil. At the coil,measure the resistance across the primary windings.It should measure between 0.50 Ohms ans 1.00 Ohms.
I hope this information is helpful.If you need anything else,don't hesitate to ask. Thanks,Chuck.

I believe this engine is with interference, therefore valve damage is possible. To check if it is with interference, remove all of the spark plugs, carefully and gently, by hand, rotate over the crank, if it contacts a valve (do this carefully) well.... then you have your answer. I'd then replace the belt with proper timing and do a compression check. If a valve went bad, you know quickly.

I hope this may have helped and I we'll keep our fingers crossed for you,

My 1996 Mitsubishi legnum does not start when it is hot but starts sweet when its cold we have replaced the solenoid with a new one so that not the problem the car wants to start when we turn the key

Coil, the plug to the coil has corrosion. Next time it doesn't start, check the plugs for spark. No spark. Look at the plug for the coil first, clean it if necessary. Or replace the coil. On rare occasions I have seen the crank sensor do this also. But not likely your problem.

How did you make the determination that all the firing orders are wrong? No matter what the source was, the firing order should be the same no matter who you got the information from. Am I correct on this.....that everybody keeps giving you the same firing order??? As a point of emphasis I would like to know if you recieved conflicting specifications regarding the firing order. You may want verify the calibration of the distributor's position. At TDC the distributor rotor should be pointing to #1 cylinder terminal on the distributor cap, or 90 degrees across from it. Please verify.
