SOURCE: No Spark from coil

i don't beleve 3 volt is enaf for the coil it has to be at least 9 volts
if this car has a resistor on the car or on the circuit going from ignition switch to ignition coil replace it, but if it does not have one then it has to have one built in the circuit wish is going to be very hard to find i will recomed you to get straight ignition power from ignition sw, to an aftermarket ignition resistor and from there to the positive side of ignition coil,
but also let me know what promaster means? is that the brand? or is that a performance coil?
and does your car has elecgtronic? or points system ignition distribuitor.

More than likely either the ignition control module, the stator or the pick-up located in the distributor.

SOURCE: 85 dodge 360 no spark replaced, coil , ign switch,

I would suspect the ignition control if you have already replaced all that stuff. I personally would replace it with an MSD ignition for better running and fuel mileage, but the ignition module should be a whole lot cheaper.

SOURCE: mazda 626 2.2 litre voltage to the coil but getting no spark.

either the coil is bad, or distributor may be bad. test the negative side of the coil then trying to start the car with a test light. the light should flash on/off. if it does not flash, either a wiring problem or distributor is bad.

check the running voltage to the coil
if it is greater tan the voltage on the case , check for a problem resistor or resistor wire to the coil in the run position

Make sure you have voltage to the + side of the coil and make sure the - side of the coil is hooked to the points in the distributor. Make sure your points are gaped correctly and they are breaking when the engine is cranked over. If you do not have voltage to the + side of the coil look for the ignition resistor, you should have 12 volts going into the resistor and somewhere around 6 volts coming out. The output from the resistor should go to the + side of the coil.

Not getting a spark on my distbubtor

Check coil. Turn key to ON (Do not start)
Check voltage at the end of the wire that connect to the coil.
(Low voltage side ONLY) NOT From The Coil Center !
Q: Any voltage
A: Yes.>> Then bad coil. (Replace coil)
No no power at all.>>> Check engine relay and its connector.

1969 vw beetlewont start no spark from coil

It has a set of points and condenser in the distributor that grounds the coil.
Have you checked the points to see if they are burnt or out of adjustment ? Is the distributor turning when you crank the engine ?

I have a 2002 ford taurus SE, coil pack has been replaced because Advanced Auto ran a diagnostic and said my coil pack was bad. Well its not and im still not getting fire on #3 and #4 spark plugs. changed...

You visually checked for spark and there was none? #3 and #4 show to be on same coil, each coil fires two plugs. Battery has a full charge? The red wire at coil pack is voltage, it has good voltage? Any applicable trouble codes?
The yellow wires with different tracer colors are grounds controlled by the pcm, one ground for each coil. Did you check voltage on ground wire engine cranking? I can't rule out a faulty coil driver in pcm. It's possible your old coil pack damaged the coil driver in pcm? If that is the problem, hope it didn't hurt the new coil pack.

Firing Order diagram for 2006 Ford Explorer

Hope this helps. The ignition coil:
  • changes low-voltage pulses from the PCM to high-voltage pulses.
  • fires 2 spark plugs simultaneously.
  • has 3 transformers.
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 1 and 5
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 2 and 6
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 3 and 4
Spark plug wires:
  • carry high-voltage pulses from the ignition coil to the spark plugs.
The spark plugs:
  • change high-voltage pulses to spark at the gap, which ignites the fuel and air mixture.
The firing order is 1-4-2-5-3-6.

Are you sure the spark is sufficient? I have seen weak coils cause your problem also bad coil wires loosing to much voltage to the distributor.
